Coppinger, MountainStar Excited for Triple-A Baseball

Sports

EL PASO — Former MLB pitcher Rocky Coppinger loves it.  As a native El Pasoan, and a huge baseball fan, he's excited for Triple-A baseball in the Sun City.

In a milestone decision to refrain from using his veto power, Mayor Cook stated he "found it in the best interest of the city" to move forward with City Council's decision to build a baseball stadium in downtown El Paso. The stadium would house a Triple A baseball team.

The decision came after a 3-4 vote in City Council Tuesday to proceed with the plans for a ballpark, with heavy public passion surrounding the issue from both sides.

MountainStar Sports Group issued the following statement today following the Mayor’s statement that he would not veto the ballpark:

“The members of MountainStar Sports Group join the people of El Paso in celebrating the vision and forward-thinking action taken by our Mayor and City Council members this week to commit to build a downtown ballpark for El Paso’s Triple-A baseball team.

“We thank Mayor John Cook for his strong leadership on this critical decision for El Paso’s future, and for honoring the Council’s decision to build a ballpark in Downtown El Paso. We also thank the members of City Council for considering this issue so diligently and for ultimately standing by their commitment to El Paso, to the Pacific Coast League, Minor and Major League Baseball, and to our Group.

“This issue was controversial, and difficult questions were addressed on both sides. At its conclusion, we believe this is a momentous step forward for El Paso. As the ownership group, we pledge to bring a team to the City that El Pasoans will be proud of and a quality product they will enjoy.”

A formal announcement of Minor League and Major League Baseball approvals and finalization of team acquisition is expected soon.
