Newschannel 10

Amarillo, Texas - The Potter County Commission has unanimously chosen a proposal to put a team in the Dilla Villa.

The Commissioners chose a proposal this morning from the Southern Independent League, one of the oldest independent leagues.

Commissioners hope to take the proposal to a negotiation stage immediately and possibly have a team today.

The league has agreed to hire Mark Lee as General Manager and he is expected to name the team.

Two other leagues, the Pecos League and the Amarillo Baseball Corporation submitted proposals.

The Dillas did not appear at the meeting but sent a letter threatening mediation if they aren't allowed to fulfill their contract.
