From the Enquirer:
Castellini is busy shoring up things in the Reds’ Florida operation. He said the club is in the final stages of purchasing a Florida State League franchise from the Boston Red Sox.
The Reds had a team in the FSL last year, playing out of the Sarasota.
“We operate it,” Castellini said. “We don’t own it. That’s a big difference.”
I had assumed the Reds had bought the operation from the Red Sox before putting a franchise there last year. This purchase would be good news for Reds fans like myself, who vacation in the Sarasota area in the summer.
As I posted last year, you can get the chance to catch a Reds GCL game during the day and a Reds FSL game at night. I’m very happy that it seems the Reds are going to stay in Sarasota.
