Watertown Wizards Up For Sale
Citing problems with the city's leadership, the owner of the Watertown Wizards has decided to sell the summer collegiate baseball team.
If the group from the Albany area does buy the team, Simmons said the team would more than likely be relocated.
7 News reached out to Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham for his reaction to this story, but he had not yet returned our call as of Tuesday evening.
Watertown City Councilman Jeff Smith, who's running for mayor, said it would be unfortunate if Watertown lost summer baseball.
He said he can't blame Simmons for his frustration with the city considering the issues Simmons had with another venture, bringing the hard rock band Godsmack to Watertown.
Simmons, one of the promoters for the concert, said he waited as long as he could for city hall to make a decision about allowing the performance; he signed a deal with the Can Am Speedway in Lafargeville.
