Some new details on Port Charlotte (A+)

It isn't just Ripken Baseball buying Vero Beach, it's a joint venture with the Rays. From the release:

"The Tampa Bay Rays and Ripken Baseball today announced that together they have purchased the team that plays in Vero Beach, FL. The team will be moved to Charlotte County and will play in Port Charlotte, FL starting in 2009."

The GM:

"Ripken Baseball has hired Joe Hart to serve as the team's General Manager. Hart was formerly the GM at the Nashville Sounds, the AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Pacific Coast League."

Pretty affordable if you live in the area:

"Full season seat (70 games) packages start at $285 and the team is taking deposits for seating now."
