City Announces License Agreement with Goldeyes
Posted on 06/01/2021

JACKSON, Tenn. – With the City of Jackson issuing a nationwide Request for Proposals for the future use of the Ballpark at Jackson, the Ballpark is entering into a new and promising era. Today, the Jackson City Council passed a license agreement with the Winnipeg Goldeyes Baseball Club to operate professional baseball in Jackson. The agreement is for non-exclusive use meaning the City can license for other events as well.

“We are thrilled for this agreement. I want to thank the Goldeyes for working with us on this agreement as we move forward.” Mayor Conger said. “We are glad that we could bring back baseball as we continue to reopen our city venues after last year. All of our venues are reopening, and I’m looking forward to a lot of events this summer.”

The Stadium most recently was under a license and use agreement with the owner of the Jackson Generals. But that agreement required the team continue to be part of minor league baseball. The Generals lost that status when Major League Baseball restructured its minor league system earlier this year and did not invite the Generals to be part of the new system – making the Generals the only team in the former Southern League not to receive such an invitation. This loss of affiliation put the Generals’ owner in material breach of its license agreement with the City. As a result, the agreement expired on May 30.
