The Pensacola News Journal is reporting that the Carolina Mudcats, the Double-A franchise of the Cincinnati Reds, will be sold to Florida businessman Quint Studer and moved to Pensacola, Fl.
Mudcats owner Steve Bryant is under a gag order from the Southern League, but did tell WRAL Wednesday night "I will own a team that will play at Five County Stadium as long as I can afford to do it."
The report in the Pensacola News says that current Mudcats ownership is in negotiations to bring a Single-A team to Zebulon, but Bryant would not confirm that.
The move for the Double-A franchise to Florida would not take place until the 2012 season.
