I mentioned the possibility of this happening a while ago, but it’s been announced officially. In 2019, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox will relocate to San Antonio, TX, the San Antonio Missions will relocate to Amarillo, TX and the Helena Brewers will relocate to Colorado Springs, CO.
San Antonio is looking to build a new stadium and upgrade from AA to AAA. The new location of the San Antonio franchise is what held up this agreement previously as Lubbock and Wichita were also vying to get this franchise, in addition to Amarillo. A new stadium will be built in Amarillo for this Texas League team. Since Colorado Springs has a large stadium that doesn’t draw well in the spring, it makes sense for a short season league to move in.
