What Will Happen to Baseball in Worcester?


Did Tornadoes owner Todd Breighner and his Jose Canseco experiment bring about the end of baseball in Worcester?

The Worcester Tornadoes ended their 2012 season early this week, and there is certainly no guarantee the team will be back in 2013.

After a year that involved Jose Canseco signing with the team, flirting with leaving, actually leaving, suing the team, and a number of vendors around the City filing suit against the franchise as well, you could certainly say the Tornadoes have been through a lot in 2012. Now, with over $600,000 in known debts, multiple lawsuits facing owner Todd Breighner and his ownership group Streamlined Sports, and the Can-Am League revoking the ownership group's membership, what will happen to baseball in Worcester in 2012?

The City of Worcester and local officials seem motivated to find a local ownership group, but will one emerge in time? If an outside group comes in to buy the team, will the problem of "absentee ownership" continue? Would making Worcester the home for a college summer league team make more sense, as it would draw top college talent from around the country?

Or, could there simply be no baseball at all at Hanover Insurance Park next summer? GoLocalWorcester wants to hear what you think. So, cast your vote in our poll.
