By Larry Kratka, WUPE Radio NewsPrint Story | Email Story
There has been no official word from Berkshire Black Bears owner Jonathon Fleisig or from baseball investors in New Haven, Ct yet but a New Haven newspaper columnist is saying it's a done deal. New Haven Register sports columnist, Dave Soloman, said over the weekend that the move of the Berkshire Black Bears of the Northeast League to New Haven looks to be (quote) "airtight." Soloman also added that among the plans to improve Yale Field, where the Black Bears would play, is to remove the left field general admission bleachers and replace it with a sizable playground. Yale is on board with the changes. Fleisig has said he would have an announcement about the future of the Black Bears by November 26th. This report was compiled by WUHN/WUPE Radio, Pittsfield
