Yet more improvement at the grandest-ever minor league baseball park.

Redbirds installing 20-ton HD video scoreboard at AutoZone Park
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
When the Memphis Redbirds begin the 2012 season April 13, fans will be treated to a new 3,600-square-foot, high-definition scoreboard. The board, which will include 1.4 million pixels and weigh more than 20 tons, will be the largest HD board in minor league baseball, eclipsing the one at Coca-Cola Field, home of the Buffalo Bison. Redbirds officials wouldn’t release the cost of the board, but the 2,640-square-foot board in Buffalo cost that team about $2 million.

Good news so far for Downtown's economy & one of its' iconic towers as a Memphis financial giant changes ownership.

Don't expect big job cuts at Morgan Keegan, says CEO of Raymond James
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:
The head of the Florida company buying Morgan Keegan & Co. said he is in no hurry to cut costs or lay off workers in Memphis. “We’re staying in Memphis. We’re committed to it."... "If you look back five years from now, we could well be bigger than we are now,'' Reilly said.

Reilly said he expects: Workers will stay in the Downtown tower rather than relocate to other buildings. Morgan Keegan's name will continue to appear on the public finance and fixed-income departments, perhaps as a division of Raymond James. Support will continue for the professional tennis tournament in Memphis, now called the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships. Information technology crews in Memphis could expand their role to back up Raymond James' entire U.S. service area. John Carson, Morgan Keegan's CEO, will stay in Memphis as president of Raymond James and head of the merged public finance and fixed-income units. Bonuses will total $215million, including about $75 million in restricted stock, for the members of the Morgan Keegan sales force who agree to stay with Raymond James. "There will be (job) losses in Memphis," Reilly said. "But we're pragmatic. We're looking at long-term earnings, stability and growth. The only way you can do that is with people.
