No More Major League Baseball Spring Training, Welcome MLS (Major League Soccer)?

Major League Soccer comes to Tucson, Arizona.  The 2011 Major League Soccer Desert Cup featured the New York Red Bulls & Sporting Kansas City, played Friday night at Hi Corbett Stadium in Tucson, AZ.  They are set to play again today (Saturday, March 5th).With the loss of Spring Training Major League Baseball, could this be the next opportunity for Tucson?  Baseball Spring Training has left Tucson, as the Arizona Diamondbacks vacated Kino Stadium & the Colorado Rockies moved out of Hi Corbett for a new facility near Scottsdale.  The Desert Cup can provide fans with a new opportunity to watch professional sports. The Tucson Toros announced earlier this year that there will not be a 2011 season for the professional baseball team at Hi Corbett Stadium.  The decision was made in anticipation of Triple-A baseball temporarily returning to Tucson.

The last game was last night and what a turn out.  Not only was the stadium parking lot full, so where all the parking lots at Reid Park.  This could be an excellent boost to our local Tucson economy.  Thoughts?
