Padres AAA Team's New Home
The historic Portland Beavers had a fall out up in Portland. PGE park being renovated for soccer full time, and a new stadium deal not cut, they had to move. Tucson had a AAA void when the Sidewinders moved up to Reno and became the Aces. The Beavers moved down to Tucson since Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium was already built. Former spring training home of the D-Backs and ChiSox, the stadium can't seem to find a team of it's own.
The Padres original plan was to skip town and go down to a suburb of San Deigo called Escondido, which has a deal pending, and could move the team in a few years. The Diamondbacks and Rockies now split a new Cactus League home, which I might post about.
