Worcester Tornadoes: Top Stories in Central Mass in 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012

 

Worcester's minor league baseball team made more headlines off the field than on the field in 2012.

Jose Canseco brought some buzz to the franchise, but his tenure was short-lived. Then the lawsuits started to roll in. The Hilton Garden Inn on Major Taylor Blvd., Canseco and others filed suit against the team's owner Todd Breighner, alleging that he failed to pay them.

The ordeal culminated in late August when the club's office on Main Street were visited by movers, removing furniture and personal items after the staff had been locked out by a constable, who delivered paperwork notifying the staff that the franchise was in the process of being held due to the pending lawsuit.

The Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball subsequently terminated the Tornadoes' membership in the league, due in large part to the numerous lawsuits it faced, and the future of baseball in Worcester remains uncertain with the Tornadoes out of commission for at least the 2013 season.
