Casper Ghosts Moving to Grand Junction

The Rookie-level Casper (WY) Ghosts (Pioneer League) are indeed on their way to Grand Junction (CO).  Pending a vote by the Grand Junction City Council on Monday, the team will begin play at Suplizio Field, home of the JUCO World Series, in 2012.  The Grand Junction newspaper refers to the team as the Grand Junction Rockies, but maybe it wasn’t meant to be taken literally.  That said, the domain www.gjrockies.com was registered on Oct. 11 for three years by an unknown registrant.

Suplizio seats more than 10,000 and is undergoing a $8.5 million upgrade that is expected to be completed by May 2012.  Read more here and here.
