El Paso, Texas (KDBC) — The El Paso Diablos could be headed to Joplin, Missouri. On Monday night the vice president of the group running the team was in Joplin to pitch a plan to the city council.
Joplin's mayor is hopeful the team will transform the city and provide much needed family entertainment for Joplin residents.
Council members showed support, but there's still work to make it happen including getting Joe Becker Stadium up to league standards for the American Association of Baseball.
The mayor hopes to have final a decision by the end of this year and begin the season in 2015.
