Jeff Fuqua cruises through the hallways of Sin City's cavernous convention center with determined speed. He keeps to a walk, but it's the purposeful gait of a busy man with much to do.
His mission is to fill the entertainment district next to the new Atlanta Braves ballpark with merchants and restaurants that not only can serve throngs of fans during 81 regular season baseball games, but also draw patrons the rest of the year.
The deadline is immovable: First pitch is just 23 months away.
"We're going to make it. We talk about it every single day," said Fuqua, 53.
