Mustangs unconcerned with World Series resolution

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo.- The Cheyenne Mustangs are focused on the season despite city counsels ruling on the Caba World Series resolution.

The resolution states that if Steve Avila, an amateur baseball tournament organizer, goes forward with another tournament, thirty percent of gross revenues must go to the damaged parties from 2017.

After the resolution passed, Mayor Marian Orr issued a veto saying the resolution was unenforceable and over-reaching.

However on Monday night, the veto was overridden, with Mustangs head coach Rick Thompson leading the way.

Thomson explains that this is more than just getting their money back - it's so his players can have the opportunity to play great teams from out of state.

"It's an opportunity for them to see good competition and play against it and get better and when you couple that with having the opportunity to do that right in your own home town," Thompson said.

"The players have really just been spending time focusing on baseball right now so it really hasn't been a topic of discussion with the team -it's really been a matter for the board of directors," said Thompson.
