Muckdogs strike out on deal with Red Wings.
It remains unclear whether the Batavia Muckdogs are safe or out in Batavia.
The renewal of the management agreement between the Muckdogs and the Rochester Red Wings has been blocked by The New York Penn league.
President of the Red Wings Naomi Silver said “Starting ten full seasons ago we began to run the ball club on a year to year basis with a maximum of 10 years.  We did operate for ten years and now that agreement has expired, so we no longer will be operating.”
Silver said she was hoping to renew the management contract however the League apparently has other plans.
The Muckdogs are owned by the Genesee county Baseball Club and per their 10 year agreement, the Red Wings will keep a 50-percent stake in the sales proceeds should the team be sold. 
President of the Genesee County Baseball Club Brian Paris is greatful for their long partnership.
Paris said “We are not only extremely Thankful but we are forever thankful for what Rochester has done for us.  Naomi Silver, Gary Larder and their team, the group of staff they have have been outstanding and without them we would not be here.  So we are just very thankful.”
Paris says he is having very positive talks with the NYS Penn League and is optimistic there will be a 2018 Muckdogs season in Batavia.
