Orioles to Fly the Coop?

June 15, 2009

scottIn an effort to hang on to a piece of the Cactus League spring training bounty, the city of Tucson is trying to convince the Baltimore Orioles that the Old Pueblo would be a better training site than Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 

GOODYEAR BASEBALL BROCHURETucson officials, i.e. the Pima County Sports and Tourism Authority, should talk to the folks in Goodyear, who successfully lured both the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds out of Florida.

Goodyear had a new stadium and training facility to offer up, along with a slick marketing piece created by the HMA Public Relations team to use in their efforts to get the two clubs into the West Valley.

Here’s to hoping the O’s come west.  There’s never enough baseball here.
