Pro Football Hall of Fame president envisions football ‘Disney World’ in Canton – Chicago Tribune

David Baker has a vision.

He sees a state-of-the-art stadium; eight fields in a youth sports complex (plus three more on campus); an indoor arena; a center for athletic performance and safety; a player care center; and a hotel. All of it — and more — surrounding the Pro Football Hall of Fame, of which Baker is president & CEO.

He envisions staging an NFL draft onsite. College championships in football and other sports. Concerts, theatrical performances and conventions. And a celebration of the NFL‘s centennial in 2020.

His vision is in the process of coming to fruition, as anyone who attended this week’s induction ceremonies, Hall of Fame game and other events that make up the Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement week can attest.
