This week, Major League Baseball gave the Oakland Athletics permission to entertain the possibility of moving to another city. Las Vegas is one of the cities at the top of the list that the baseball club could move to.
The Entertainment Capital of the World has grown its sports profile in less than five years. A professional baseball team seems like the logical next step. Whether the Athletics move or not will come down to whether the city of Oakland will help the team finance a new stadium.
The Athletics already have ties to Las Vegas with their Triple A squad being here, the Las Vegas Aviators. Only time will tell if our great city will be getting an MLB team, but it would certainly be a welcomed addition to our fast-growing sports community.
