Morgantown lands NY-Penn League baseball team

” cols=“100” rows=“20”>

The Jamestown [N.Y.] Jammers minor league baseball team is relocating to Morgantown and will play in Monongalia County’s new baseball stadium, according to WVU athletic director Oliver Luck.

The new stadium, which is still being built, will also be home to West Virginia University’s baseball team.

“We’re very excited about having a professional sports franchise in north-central West Virginia,” said Luck. “It’s another example of how baseball is catching on in the state.”

The Jammers are a short-season Class A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates that play in the New York-Penn League.

The team is owned by Bob Rich Jr., owner of Rich Products Corp., the largest family-owned frozen food manufacturer in the United States. Rich also owns the Buffalo Bisons, a Class AAA International League affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Northwest Arkansas Naturals, a Class AA affiliate of the Blue Jays.

“When we knew our ballpark was going to be a reality we contacted the New York-Penn League,” Luck said. “I told them we would be building this ballpark and asked if any franchise would be interested.”
