The Kansas City T-Bones were evicted from Community America Ballpark and announced plans for the team to be sold on Monday, Oct. 14.
The team was in over $600,000 of rent debt to the Unified Government of Wyandotte County, and also owed expenses on utilities to the Board of Public Utilities. The eviction came after the team was given a 30-day notice from Wyandotte Country in hopes that the team would have debts paid on time.
“The Kansas City T-Bones are progressing toward a sale and are scheduled to complete the sale this week,” the team’s statement read. “The incoming owner has been in close negotiations and planning with the Unified Government, all for the sake of setting the table for continued American Association professional baseball in Wyandotte County.”
On Tuesday, Oct. 15, Wyandotte’s Unified Government released an agenda for their Thursday meeting to discuss their sale to Max Fun Entertainment, LLC. However, the sale has not been confirmed. “
Junior Harrison Bechtel has been to multiple T-Bones games and think that they are an important part of Kansas City sports.
“They’re a team that everyone knows and that it’s fun to go see,” Bechtel said. “They have cheap tickets so it was always fun to go and just be there.”
Details on the teams’ sale, acquisition and future are set to be announced after the meeting Thursday.
