Storm Chasers’ owner Gary Green heads group that purchases Baseball America

Gary Green’s passion for baseball has led to another significant purchase.

The Omaha Storm Chasers owner’s Alliance Baseball LLC, which also has a stake in the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels, is leading a group that has purchased the publication Baseball America.

The deal was finalized at Baseball America’s headquarters in Durham, North Carolina, on Monday.

Green, Alliance Baseball’s CEO, and Alliance president Larry Botel, managing partner of the Storm Chasers, are being joined in their new venture by David Gleason, the founder and CEO of 3STEP Sports. Gleason will serve as the president of their new ownership company, Baseball America Enterprises.

I am hoping this is for the better. I have purchased or subscribed to BA since 1985. I have found the content in the magazine to have slid in the past few years. Their college coverage used to be the best but I now go to D1baseball for my information. It isn't that they do not have talented and informed people. It seems they haven't put forward the effort they used to give. It seems they have come full circle from the beginning. They filled a void that the legendary Sporting News left in their early years. Now others are filling the void they have caused from their neglect.

They ride on their scout and team contacts. The various lists are good, league, team, draft,etc. But the journalism outside of that is nothing to pay for. I dont bother to read the team reports any more, the information in them is so inconsequential or obvious that I didn't learn anything new...so I stopped reading them.

For me, BA stopped being "must read" baseball coverage somewhere in the George W Bush years. Not sure what happened, but it's no longer at the same level of quality as it was in the 1990s when I started reading it (could be that the competition is just that much better now).
