EL PASO — So what still needs to be done before a Triple A team comes to El Paso?
First, MountainStar sports group needs to close out the purchase of the Tucson Padres. That's expected to happen soon.
The city then needs to finalize a contract to purchase two buildings and a parking lot for the relocation City Hall. City Hall will then have to be demolished. Utilities and City Hall will then have to be relocated.
An architect and construction crew then needs to be hired to build a new stadium. And then of course -- there's the actual construction of the stadium.
El Paso's first team is scheduled to take the field in 2014.
