Manchester, New Hampshire, is focusing on baseball to encourage economic development in the region. The region plans to issue $ 27.5 million of taxable bonds to finance the construction of a new stadium for an incoming minor-league team. While bonds will be general obligations of the city, half the debt service will come from rental payments that the home team and concessionaires will make to the city
