This is what Eastern league President Joe McEacharn had to say about the report on BallparkDigest.com:
“To the best of my knowledge…no person, team, club, league official or otherwise has been granted any permission to explore any move of any club to Richmond,” McEacharn said. “There have been no discussions on any level involving any Eastern League club.
“Nobody is talking to Richmond about doing anything.”
McEacharn also had strong words for the website:
Let me summarize this as concise as possible. First, don’t believe what you read on BallparkDigest. It is nothing but a site created to report on various reports. There is no level accuracy or inside information in many of the stories; it’s all speculation."
Defenders GM Charlie Dowd also shot down the report, saying he and owner Lou DiBella have discussed the speculation.
“Our organization has not spoken to any official in either Richmond or Bowie,” Dowd said.
