Sky Sox leaving the Springs?

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Rumors are circulating that the Colorado Springs Sky Sox could be leaving Colorado Springs. FOX21 News reached out to the team and this is the statement that was sent back.

The Elmore Sports Group and Sky Sox have been loyal and dedicated members serving the CS community for 28 years. We love Colorado Springs and certainly have a desire to keep baseball in Colorado Springs

With that said, If the City of San Antonio, the 37th largest TV market in the country calls and says they would like to talk about a downtown stadium and the possibility of bringing Triple A Baseball to San Antonio, it would be imprudent as business owners not to listen.

That is where we are right now. This is a process, there is no deal in place, no downtown ballpark and no agreement of any kind with any city. We don’t know frankly what is going to happen at this point but if or when discussions do take place they would be the beginning of the process, not the end. And if anything were to materialize from the discussions it would be well off into the distant future.

In the meantime, as always its business as usual for the Sky Sox. We begin our 29th season here in CS on April 15th. We have a fantastic team of young prospects joining us this year that should give us one of the most exciting seasons in years along with the best promotional calendar we have ever created. 2016 is going to be a fantastic season ahead.
