EL PASO, Texas – ExplorerNews.com reports that the Tucson Padres have extended their contract for a year when they are expected to start playing ball in El Paso next spring.
The website reports that the Pima County board of supervisors voted on the contract extension to keep the team in Tucson for another year if the stadium being built in downtown El Paso isn't ready for the 2014 season.
MountainStar Sports Group, which owns the Tucson Padres slated to move to El Paso, will pay the Pima County Stadium District $70,000 up front to extend the contract until Oct. 31, 2014, ExplorerNews.com reported.
If everything goes as planned, the extension will be terminated.
