B-Mets owners can shop to other buyers, but not sell.

Posted:
Earlier this month, a federal judge in Utica ruled to extend the temporary restraining order preventing the B-Mets owners from selling or negotiating a sale to anyone other than Main Street Baseball. That order was extended until April 30th, the longest length allowable by law, pending an extension. Thursday, a federal judge ruled that B-Mets owners can negotiate a sale with other groups, but cannot sell to anyone other than Main Street Baseball.

Main Street Baseball is the Florida based group that intends to relocate the B-Mets to Wilmington, DE, should the sale go through. B-Mets President Mike Urda ended negotiations, that Main Street Baseball CEO David Heller says was against the legally binding Letter of Intent.

Urda has said that an alternate buyer presented himself after negotiations with Main Street ended, and that this buyer seems intent on keeping the B-Mets in Binghamton. In a previous statement, Urda called this buyer "the future guardian angel of the Binghamton Mets."

No comment or statement was issued Thursday by Urda in regards to the latest ruling.
