Baltimore Orioles… Refuse to extend the home stadium by 5 years…”I want a contract for at least 10 to 15 years”.
News of an extension is being heard as the Baltimore Orioles and home stadium Camden Yaz are nearing the end of their loan deal.
Local media ‘Baltimore Sun’ said on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time), “According to sources, the Baltimore club recently refused a five-year extension contract. “The club wants a longer and more comprehensive stadium contract and plans to sign it,” he said.
Baltimore has used Camden Yaz as its home stadium since 1992. And the lease expires at the end of this season. Before that, there must be a new contract and it is expected to be signed.
Maryland Governor Wes Moore said, “We will develop the Camden Yaz complex as a sports tourism zone and create decades-long public-private partnerships.” The report did not mention the decision related to the five-year extension contract.
Baltimore currently wants to sign a contract for at least 10 to 15 years, and speculates it will be announced around mid-July, the All-Star break.
If the two sides sign a contract smoothly, they will be less worried about the relocation of ties. Some say that if the negotiations are prolonged, they may sign an extension contract for one or two years.
The Angelos family, which owns the club, stressed that there would be no relocation of the connection, but some predict that the family may relocate the connection due to legal problems and contract expiration. Baltimore fans are watching the negotiations with bated breath.
