The prospects of Los Alamos hosting a semiprofessional baseball team for the 2014 season appear to have whiffed.
Andrew Dunn, president of the Pecos League, an independent baseball league with six clubs in New Mexico, told the Los Alamos Monitor Tuesday he’d received an email from Los Alamos County that it would not be interested in housing a team here.
The Pecos League, which has eight teams under its umbrella, including teams from Taos, Santa Fe and Las Vegas, had expressed interest in Los Alamos as a potential site for a proposed ninth team, as it geographically it would’ve been a good fit with the teams in northern New Mexico.
Dunn sent an email to several local contacts last month trying to assess the interest Los Alamos might have in the league. Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers got back to Dunn saying county officials would certainly look into the prospect.
However, Dunn received an email earlier this month from deputy county manager Brian Bosshardt saying thanks but no thanks.
