Report: Mets stop Yanks from moving AAA team to Newark

Take your minor league team elsewhere Yanks.

According to a report, the Mets blocked the Yankees from temporarily relocating their Triple-A team to Newark while renovations take place at their ballpark in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo told the Newark Star-Ledger:
“Unfortunately, the Mets exercised their territorial rights to block this temporary partnership and have prevented the chance for baseball fans to come to Newark and Essex County to watch players in minor league baseball’s highest classification on their way up to the major leagues. It would have rejuvenated interest in one of the highest levels of the sport in an important urban area.
