Sky Sox Owner Signals Club Will Leave Colorado Springs In Three Years

It sounds like San Antonio, Texas, is going to get a Triple-A baseball team at Colorado Spring's expense. The Texas city's mayor spilled the beans Thursday in a press conference, the Express-News reported:

San Antonio Missions owner David Elmore and Mayor Ivy Taylor announced at a City Council meeting today that Triple-A baseball is headed to San Antonio for the 2019 season.

The Gazette said a lot of details have to be worked out before ball games can begin for the scheduled 2019 season,

Hurdles remain in this process, Sky Sox president and general manager Tony Ensor stressed to The Gazette. He knows of no funding in place for a new stadium in San Antonio, and the Elmore Group does not plan to pay for any of the project that could cost about $75 million. Also, no site has been selected for a ballpark and the league has not granted its consent.

"This is the beginning of a very long process," Ensor said. "There are no guarantees, there are no foregone conclusions we're leaving."
