A Request for Qualifications for the operator of an multiuse ballpark/venue in downtown Amarillo has been released by Wallace Bajjali Development Partners, developer of the facility.
The RFQ is pretty straightforward, asking for potential owners of a professional baseball franchise their qualifications for running the facility, including their background and financial wherewithal. Though it’s not explicitly mentioned in the RFQ, the underlying financial assumptions for a new ballpark, as prepared by CSL, assume an independent team as the tenant of the ballpark.
The Amarillo Sox (independent; American Association) are slated to play in Potter County Stadium until a new ballpark is completed.
