Here is an interesting article about the possible new owners for a potential independent baseball team which will play in Ramapo, NY as a part of the Can-Am League:
What is of interest is this quote from the article:
“The owners include former Yankee catcher John Flaherty of Pearl River and Stephen Mulvey, a golf course developer in Rye whose family owned a piece of the Brooklyn-Los Angeles Dodgers from 1912 to 1975 and ran Dodgertown in Florida.
Other owners include Clarkstown resident Michael Aglialoro, a businessman who runs the nonprofit Clarkstown Education Foundation and a trustee with the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
The team will be run by Ken Lehner, a part owner and former executive with the Florida Marlins Major League Baseball team who has been involved with professional football and hockey teams. Shawn Reilly, a Florida real estate developer, worked for the New York Mets.”
There are a significant number of MLB ties to this possible expansion team, so we will see what happens with the city of Ramapo and the possible new stadium.
