Sweets owners explain decision behind Yakima expansion

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, wash. -- Wednesday we learned baseball is coming back to Yakima. The West Coast League awarded the ownership group of the Walla Walla Sweets an expansion membership in Yakima for 2014. Pacific Baseball Ventures tells SWX about how they came to decide on Yakima.

"The fact that Yakima was an open market that was relatively close to our center of operations in Walla Walla was a benefit. It's a great community. It's not just you look for an open town, you look for a market that has a history, an appreciation, and frankly the ability to enjoy the game. Yakima fit all those requirements for us," said Zachary Fraser, vice-president of PBV.
