Amid Rumors, Muckdogs Operator Issues Statement

Batavia Muckdogs LogoAddressing rumors that the Batavia Muckdogs (Single-A, New York-Penn League) have been sold and could be moving to Waldorf (MD), the team’s operator issued the following statement:

The following is a statement from Rochester Red Wings President/CEO/COO Naomi Silver regarding the reports surrounding the Batavia Muckdogs:

“Since the Red Wings took over operation of the Batavia Muckdogs in 2008 after the Muckdogs had endured several years of financial hardship, there have been several serious out-of-town suitors, none which met our, or the Genesee County Baseball Club’s, criteria for selling. While we have made no secret of the fact that the team is for sale, we are not in a position to comment on the current status except to say that baseball will go on as expected in 2016. The Red Wings are very proud of the way we have operated the Batavia franchise and continue to enjoy extending our reach to Genesee County. We are looking forward to opening day in Batavia on June 22nd.”

Ms. Silver, the Red Wings and Muckdogs will have no further comment at this time.
