Sold, But Not Leaving Town!
(as posted in the Lookout Landing diaries this morning):
No, this isn't another thread about the Sonics potentially leaving town. This one's actually about baseball.
I heard on the radio this morning, and saw it confirmed on the Rainiers web site, that the Tacoma Rainiers have finally been sold. George Foster (Foster Farms) has been trying to sell the team for awhile, and a Texas group that has other minor league interests bought the team.
Damn. I was going to buy the team when I won the mega-Lottery. Just to be sure to keep it in town.
It sounds like, though, that they're not going to be moved. They're already talking about rennovating Cheney, renewing the lease, and extending the player development contract with the Mariners.Sad news for me, good news for Rainiers fans!
