That much-anticipated press conference in Erie yesterday announced that the SeaWolves extended their PDA with the Detroit Tigers through 2010 and extended the team lease with the Erie County Convention Center Authority for another three years as well–essentially squashing any rumors that Erie may be among the teams interested in moving to Richmond after next season.
“We are very pleased to make this announcement today. It really shows a great commitment to a great community by all parties involved,” SeaWolves General Manager John Frey said. “The Tigers have been a big part of the success of the SeaWolves for the past seven seasons and we look forward to continuing that relationship. A big part of the thanks also goes to Casey Wells and the entire ECCCA for their continued improvements to the ballpark and commitment to the club.”
