Joplin, Missouri (KTSM) — The El Paso Diablos are one step closer to leaving the Sun City.
Monday night the Joplin, Missouri city council agreed to a $4 million financing package to try lure the El Paso Diablos to the Show Me State. The plan draws money from several sources, but would require the city to assume nearly $2 million in debt.
The city's 100 year-old stadium needs to be renovated in order for the team to move. The council's expected to take final action on the deal next month.
