Another Potential Minor-League Site

Zach Levine has word that, aside from the proposed site in Sugar Land, another Houston-area site has its eyes on a minor-league franchise.

The East Montgomery County Improvement District signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ventura Sports Group and Sugar Land-based Wallace Bajjali Development Partners to build a stadium in Montgomery County with the intention of hosting independent minor league baseball in 2012.

The site would be in Porter just off the U.S. 59 feeder road near the proposed intersection with the Grand Parkway extension.

Because the Astros won't waive their right to allow an affiliated team within their metropolitan area, The Porters would have to host an independent league team.
