Change To Blasters Lease

The Joplin City Council made one adjustment to its lease with the Joplin Blasters baseball team. The lease is no longer with WLD Suarez Baseball, but with Pro Baseball Management LLC, based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Joplin Parks and Recreation Director Chris Cotten tells News Talk KZRG the difference between the two groups.

"It's the same principals, the same main people involved with the baseball aspect.  They've parted ways with their developer.  This group is focused on baseball, whereas the original group was focused on baseball and the plaza."

Cotten says the City would like a plaza to develop around Joe Becker Stadium, but that will come later after the stadium is rebuilt and the Blasters begin play in the American Association in 2015.
