Prospect League gives OLC until Sept. 1 to get new ownership in place
The Oakley-Lindsay Center has asked The Prospect League for and received a 30-day extension to see if the Quincy Gems will field a team next year.
The league had set an Aug. 1 deadline for Quincy to remain in the league. Rob Ebbing, Gems General Manager and the Executive Director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, said the extension was needed as final proposals are still coming in from potential buyers.
Ebbing said the League granted the extension.
The OLC hasn’t received any formal bids. Ebbing said three potential buyers are interested. Two are local and one is from outside of Quincy.
The team was put up for sale last October after losing more than $90,000 during the 2013 season.
