Report: Warner Robins man buying Chattanooga team | News
A Warner Robins man is in the process of buying Chattanooga's minor league team, a Tennessee newspaper reports.
The Lookouts' owner reportedly declined comment. The newspaper says the team has been for sale since 2010.
Contacted by email by 13WMAZ, Hughes declined comment.
They offered moral support, but no money, for his quest. And to avoid competition, they agreed to give him exclusive rights to look for a team that could move to Warner Robins.
Last year, Hughes said his study showed that Warner Robins could support a Single-A major-league affiliate and said the city needed a 5,000-seat ballpark. His consultant said a public-private partnership with local governments would probably be needed to build the stadium.
Hughes' letters to the city and county concluded, "I would like to request that no one from the county or any parties under your sponsorship, influence, control, or contact me, especially at my home."
