Ghosts’ Future In Casper Looking Scary

Casper GhostsMultiple reports out of Casper, Grand Junction, Colorado and various baseball media sources, have been saying that the rookie league affiliate of the Colorado Rockies baseball team…the Casper Ghosts, are almost set to move to Grand Junction.

On Friday, September 30th, reported that all that remains is a $200,000 buyout of the team’s lease at Mike Lansing Field.

Rumors of the move started back in January when a majority share of the team was purchsed by Rockies’ team owners Charlie and Dick Monfot.

The Ghosts sub-lease the field from the Casper American Legion Baseball program.

In an interview with the Grand Junction Sentinel newspaper, Casper Legion President Cole Chuman said before this past season started, some revisions were made in the buyout clause of the contract, so that the Ghosts’ obligation was not as hefty, and they agreed to change the lease agreement.

The team has been in Casper since 2001, but has usually been near the bottom of the pioneer league, in terms of wins and home game attendance.

The team has won only 42% of its games during its 11-year stay in Casper, and this past season, the Ghosts finished with a record of 27 wins and 49 losses…which is tied for the 2nd worst season, while in the oil city.

Ghosts Executive Director Tim Ray and Casper City Manager John Patterson could not be reached for comment on the issue and Grand Junction City officials have not confirmed that negotiations were under-way, to acquire the team.
