The sale announcement comes with the usual list of conditions: it must be approved by the Southern League, Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball. DiBella and Myers are optimistic the approval process could be completed before the beginning of the regular season in April — a process that certainly will be sped along because DiBella and other investors, which include Todd “Parney” Parenell, are known quantities as Flying Squirrels owners.
It doesn’t sound like much will change this season; it is a little late to do much anyway, and the Biscuits aren regarded as a well-run team. Myers and Dickson brought the team to Riverwalk Stadium in 2004 after spending several years in Orlando, and the franchise was a success from the beginning. From the Montgomery Advertiser:
DiBella declined to get into specific plans he has for Montgomery, but said he is an idea guy who will look to make his mark on the team and bring people to the stadium who had never been before.
“Minor league baseball is about fun, and it’s about relationships,” DiBella said. “Our goal is to get everybody working with us and for us to have fun, and we want that to trickle down to everybody who walks into the ballpark, and we want to be an impactful, important part of the community.”
