Muckdogs Future in Doubt
Written by Dan Fischer on November 30, 2017
The precarious future of the Batavia Muckdogs is now even more doubtful.
It was learned today that the New York Penn league has blocked the renewal of the management agreement between the Muckdogs and the Rochester Red Wings.
Naomi Silver is President of the Red Wings:
The agreement between the Red Wings and the Genesee County Baseball Club, the owner of the Batavia Muckdogs, includes a provision that if the team is sold, the Red Wings would receive five percent of the proceeds for each year the organization ran the team. That agreement, Silver said, survives this decision by the league.
Both organizations announced a few years ago that the team was for sale.
Brian Paris is the President of the Genesee County Baseball Club. He told us today he is optimistic baseball will be played at Dwyer Stadium next season
Officials with the NYP League have been unavailable for comment.
