The sale of the Hagerstown Suns (Low Class A; Sally League) has officially been completed, with a group of investors buying the franchise from Mandalay Baseball for a reported $6.7 million.
The new ownership group is lead by Bruce Quinn, general manager of Polo Trace Country Club in Delray Beach, Fla. The group also includes Tony Dahbura, vice president of Hub Labels in Hagerstown; Dr. Mitesh Kothari, a Hagerstown resident; and Sheri Quinn. They comprise Hagerstown Baseball LLC.
It’s the first time Hagerstown has had local ownership of a baseball team since 1992, when the former Hagerstown Suns — now the Bowie Baysox — played in the Class AA Eastern League.
“The franchise has come full circle,” Quinn said in a release. “If I’ve heard it once, I have heard it 100 times. Local ownership is important in Hagerstown.”
