Quails present plan for part-time baseball in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Peach State League presented their plan to the city of Albany for the Albany Quails play 15 games at the Paul Eames Complex in July and August.




WALB news ten sports reported last week, the Quails will be one of four teams in the Peach State League that will play most of their games in Macon.

Parks and Recreation director Suzanne Davis says city attorney Nathan Davis will look into concerns the city has about the use of the Albany Quails name but league co-owner says that issue is not a deal breaker.

Davis says the league would simply rent the stadium like other groups do for tournaments for the 15 games this year and if desired a lease for next year would then be negotiated.



Peach State league co-owner Bill Larsen says even though there have been five teams come and go in the last 15 years, it wasn't because of a lack of fans.

Bill Larsen said. "They had some decent numbers I thought even then. It has been a long time but again it is test case to see how things do well and if it goes as well as I expect then we go in with more games for the following year, 2011."

The Peach State League opens their season in Macon on June 19th.
