GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — The Grand Junction Rockies will be sold at the end of this Pioneer League Season. The purchasers, Future Legends Complex, says their immediate plans are to keep the team in town and playing at Suplizio Field. “We’re excited to bring Grand Junction under the Future Legends umbrella,” said Mike Tollin, managing partner of professional sports at Future Legends. “We’ll be taking over at the end of the current season, and we have high hopes for the franchise. Our goals are to put a winning ball club on the field, enhance the experience for fans attending the games, and truly make the team and its players an integral part of this baseball-loving community.”

The Rockies current ownership group, GJR, LLC, also released a statement:

“For everything there is a season—especially when it comes to baseball. Due to the
changes in the affiliation of minor league baseball, GJR, LLC, the current
owners of the Grand Junction Rockies, believe that the season of its ownership
of the team has run its course and that it is an appropriate time for this
sale.

GJR, LLC thanks all the tremendous fans, sponsors, and employees of the Grand
Junction Rockies for their support since 2012. We wish Future Legends all the
best in continuing to bring professional baseball to Grand Junction for many
seasons yet to come.”
