Portland, Oregon are you ready for some Baseball???
AWWW YEAH!!! They might be the latest city to get a new MLB team headed by Russell Wilson and Ciara.
The Seattle Seahawks QB made the announcement on Twitter page saying
“MLB to Portland! Let’s Go!!! @Ciara & I are pumped to be Owners, Investors, and Partners in bringing @MLB to Rip City!” along with a link to a letter where he explains their latest move.
Ciara had something to say as well on the matter saying
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to be one of only a few African American women to have ownership in an MLB franchise….As a young girl growing up in Atlanta, I was a tomboy who ran track and worked the hot dog stand at Turner Field and now I get to watch Future fall in love with T-Ball. My dream is to empower more females in ownership of major sports franchises and open more doors for Sienna and all girls everywhere.”
Here are some fun facts….
Portland has not had a professional baseball team in 80 years!!!!
But if Ciara and Russell can pull it off, Portland will be able to cheer on baseball team sometime soon.
