2023 Cactus League: The economic impact

An ASU study finds that out-of-state Cactus League fans generated millions for Arizona's economy.

In this story aired Sept. 21, 2023, on Arizona PBS:

[The study] covers the February to March period. What we saw was a state GDP impact of $418 million. That is a conservative estimate as well because it's based primarily upon the infusion of new dollars into the local economy: We ignore any locals that attend the games.
