Horizon Award nominees for best sports facility

The Horizon Awards Voting Academy released the final nominees vying for top honors at the 2005 Horizon Awards for Sports Business, the nation’s only national recognition forum celebrating excellence in sports business.

“This was another very strong year for submissions,” says Dave St. Peter, president of the Minnesota Twins and Voting Academy member. “I don’t envy our position. Selecting overall winners will be very difficult. There’s a lot of cutting-edge work being done, and I think this nominee list is a great example.”
