Aside from completely missing that Bob was joking, you're making the same fallacious argument I've already seen. Yes, a home may be older than the schools. But a 120 year old home MIGHT have a few hundred people go through it over the course of that lifespan. They also have owners that don't have to go to their neighbors and say "please, sir, may I have some more" in order to effect…

OLC looks to continue Gems operations for 2014

Four potential new owners still in the mix for the future

The Quincy Gems remain the property of the Oakley Lindsey Center - for now.

Conversations with parties interested in buying the Quincy gems continue, but Oakley Lindsey Center Executive Director Rob Ebbing says it is unlikely at this point that any one buyer will step in with a purchase offer. 

Ebbing and his staff have begun preparations for the 2014 season. Ebbing said "We said all along we were gonna run the season. There was a point in there where we were kind of waiting to see where the development of the conversations were going to go and how fast they were going to move." 

He said they did not want to rush a new owner into a position where they may not be ready to operate the team.

The four potential owners have been notified that the OLC will go ahead with the season as planned. 

To that end, Ebbing attended the Prospect League Winter Meeting last week.  A couple of teams have changed ownership and a new team from Springfield, Ohio has joined the league and Ebbing says the league has agreed to hire umpires fresh out of umpiring school.

 

He said, "These are individuals who are looking to grow rapidly in the baseball industry and try to get into the minors and the majors."  According to Ebbing,  the program will actually save teams money over previous seasons.

 

The Gems open their season in Hannibal on Thursday, May 29th.
