The publication Baseball America is reporting that a New York-Penn League team -- likely Batavia Muckdogs -- is an official announcement away from moving to Binghamton. The deal has yet to be finalized, it says.
The magazine sites sources that say Ottawa is eyeing the Binghamton Mets franchise to move to Canada and Binghamton officials are looking for a New-York Penn League team as a replacement.
Rochester Red Wings CEO Naomi Silver acknowledges “preliminary, basic discussions as to whether it is something the Batavia ballclub would consider," in the article.
The Muckdogs just signed on with the Miami Marlins for the 2013 season. They have been operated by the Red Wings since 2008.
