PCL Still Eyeing Escondido

Today there is a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune about the continued efforts by San Diego Padres owner Jeff Moorad to relocate his Triple-A team to Escondido, California.

This is the former Portland Beavers franchise, which was booted out of PGE Park by then-owner Merritt Paulson. Paulson sold the team to Moorad, who struck a stadium deal with Escondido and temporarily moved the team to Tucson for two years, while the stadium in Escondido was being built. That stadium project has been delayed indefinitely due to budget problems in the state of California.

On another subject, on Wednesday afternoon I’ll have a substantial post in which we will look at the recent trend of increased scoring in the PCL.
