Major League Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the Oakland Athletics’ move would be approved in June at the earliest.
On the 26th (Korean time), Manfred had an interview with local media such as ‘AP’ at the place where he visited American Family Field, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, and said, “We will hold a vote on the relocation of the owner in June at the earliest.”
Major League Baseball will hold a meeting of owners in New York City, New York, USA from June 13 to 15. He revealed that he plans to discuss the relocation of the Athletics to Las Vegas at this meeting.
“There are necessary internal procedures for the ointment transfer, and we haven’t started that yet,” he said.
The Athletics, who have been promoting the construction of a new stadium for a long time, but failed to reach an agreement with the city of Oakland over cost sharing, are pushing for a relocation to Las Vegas.
Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo said the state legislative leaders and the Athletics recently reached an agreement to finance the tax needed to build the new stadium. This agreement is subject to parliamentary approval.
“It’s a question you should ask the mayor of Oakland,” Manfred said when asked if Oakland’s chances of defending the Athletics were completely gone. “Oakland’s mayor said he would block negotiations after the Athletics reached an agreement with Las Vegas. I cannot foresee all futures. It is not yet fully agreed with Las Vegas. We’ll see how it goes,” he added.
Oakland’s current home, the Oakland Coliseum, is one of the most underdeveloped stadiums in the major leagues.먹튀검증
“They continue to make decisions that cannot maintain the required level of management of the stadium,” Manfred said. As a result, the number of spectators decreased and it also affected the performance of the team.”
