It was announced today that the St. George Roadrunners of the Golden League have folded: http://www.thespectrum.com/article/20091209/SPORTS/91209014/St.+George+Roadrunners+afternoon+update
The article quotes Roadrunners’ staff members as stating that the team suffered at the gate due to the economy. We at IndependentBaseball.net hope that the quality people in the Roadrunners organization (those in uniform and in the front office) have another opportunity to continue their careers in professional baseball.
There is speculation that the team may move to Maui, or the intended 2010 Maui franchise will be an expansion team. Here is XnE, Inc’s letter to shareholders dated November 9, 2009: http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Xne-Inc-1072995.html
