AL.com reports that Lori Webb, president of the Southern League, says the team is on the market. And the team is evaluating a buyer!
Lori Webb tells AL.com:
"What I can tell you is the Mobile franchise has been on the market for a while and we do have some potential buyers," Webb said. "At this time, we have not approved a sale yet. We're just starting the process and, really, that's all I can tell you at this time. We have a potential sale. It's up to the league at this point to do our due diligence and see if we want to approve the potential buyers. It's a process that could take a couple of months. That's what we're working on now."
The approval process is separate from the buying process, so this could take some time if it happens.
What does this mean to you? What would Mobile look like without the Bay Bears? Do you regularly go to their games? If not, why?
