Shreveport-Bossier Captains moving to Laredo

Shreveport-Bossier CaptainsThe Shreveport-Bossier Captains membership in the independent American Association has been bought by the Laredo Lemurs, but baseball is expected back at Fair Grounds Field in the form of a summer-collegiate team next season.

“We thank everyone involved with our efforts in Shreveport-Bossier for the last nine years, starting with the fans, along with sponsors, city officials, and our staff,” team president Scott Berry said. “And while the American Association will not be at Fair Grounds Field next season, we remain committed to bringing baseball and affordable family fun to this community.”

“In that respect, we are currently working with the City of Shreveport and another party to bring a summer collegiate league team to Fair Grounds Field in 2012.”

Presumably it will be a team in the Texas Collegiate League. No surprise: Berry and crew had been hinting for months that the Captains would not be returning for the 2012 season. This confirms it.
