I bet that makes the most financial sense. For one, the stadiums in question cost a fraction of traditional professional facilities to build and operate. Secondly, the return for the communities is probably magnified as well - while professional cities may see incremental upticks in tourism(-like) activity from visiting fans, their bases are likely to be spending their dollars within the same economy one way or another (some notable exceptions like New Orleans come to mind). Conversely, the Cactus League draws almost exclusively from outside the area, generating much more significant marginal increases.
