That means the purchase of the Mustangs by Main Street Baseball, led by Dave Heller and Bob Herrfeldt, is officially done.
The team introduced its new ownership group at a December 5 press conference at Dehler Park.
“Bob Herrfeldt and I are thrilled to officially become stewards of such a great franchise in a great community,” said Main Street Baseball President Dave Heller. “We have a ton of new ideas and new promotions planned, and we are eager to work with our talented Mustangs front office team to get started. We cannot wait to begin welcoming people across the region to Dehler Park for unmatched fun, family-friendly, affordable entertainment all summer long.”
Main Street Baseball now owns the Wilmington Blue Rocks (High Class A; Carolina League), High Desert Mavericks (High Class A; California League) and the Quad Cities River Bandits (Low Class A; Midwest League).
“We are extremely happy that Main Street Baseball has received final approval from Major League Baseball and the merger sale is completed,” said outgoing team president Woody Hahn. “I am very pleased with the new ownership group and the fact that their other clubs are extremely well managed. They are just what Billings needs to continue to grow the Billings Mustangs while keeping the club ‘the Pride of the Pioneer League.’”
