MLB to Orlando? Pat Williams announces campaign for the team



Pat Williams, co-founder of Orlando Magic, said Wednesday that Orlando is officially on the market for a Major League Baseball team. The campaign to get an MLB team into town was announced during a press conference in the Dubsdread taproom. "Orlando has proven in the years since Magic 1989 began, that it's a big sports city," said Williams. "Football fans have opted for the Orlando City Lions, and now is the time to take the lead and make baseball possible." "The next step is to try to become a Major League Baseball city," Williams said. Williams said it was vital to find out how much Central Florida wants to be an MLB city. Who the team belongs to and where they would play is subordinate to community support. Williams also announced that the nickname for the potential MLB team will be the Orlando Dreamers. Williams asks people to show their support and express their interest in a season ticket plan by visiting this website. Those who show interest at an early stage will receive ticket information before going public, Williams said. Asked why Major League Baseball could consider another team from Florida despite low stakes in St. Petersburg and Miami, Williams said the market was different. "Baseball has gone elsewhere twice. I say that as sweet as I can. Baseball did not work in either city. I'm convinced this market is different, "Williams said, adding that Williams will not look at potential locations for a ballpark until the community responds, and if Central Florida wants a team, they'll investigate a location, a process The Williams takes at least four years.
