PRESS RELEASE – The Diamond League of Professional Baseball will not start in 2014 with the contemplated 60-game schedule. Although I am disappointed that we will not start Diamond League play in 2014, I feel it is more important to start a new project based on a solid foundation. I was unable to be completely satisfied that there were six available facilities that measured up to our professional playing standards. We do, however, believe in the economic model and the need based in the game of baseball for a circuit like the Diamond League to exist. We will work towards an 8-team 84-game schedule to start play in 2015.
