Amarillo, Texas - Baseball is officially back in Amarillo... Potter County Commissioners gave the lease to Southern Independent Baseball.

During this morning's meeting, it was announced the group would bring in a new team and lease the stadium for $72,000 a year.

That deal was inked on Monday. The Dillas ownership group is suing Potter County for evicting them in early October after they failed to pay the $75,000 they owe.

A Potter County Judge is expected to rule on that case Friday... But Southern Independent Baseball is confident and they plan to move forward with hiring a general manager before then.
