Charlotte Bats Work To Bring MLB To The Queen City

CHARLOTTE, NC– There’s a major push to bring Major League Baseball to the Queen City.

Rick Curti, the founder and CEO of the Charlotte Bats, began campaigning 4 years ago. In the summer of 2015, Charlotte was selected with 8 other cities for future expansion.

Curti says he did extensive research based on population, jobs, and people moving to our city and says the push to bring MLB here can be supported.

“We have the jobs, we have the transplants, we have so much out here. We’re the second largest banking community,” said Curti.

Curti says the next step is to get ownership for the team.

The Charlotte Bats have already created uniforms, jerseys and other merchandise.
