The minor leagues may be headed to North County, according to a published report.
An official announcement of the sale is expected to be made Thursday afternoon. For now, the group is looking at a temporary move to Tucson, where the announcement is scheduled, the paper reported.
The Moorad group negotiated for the team for what sources told the North County Times was between $16 million to $20 million.
Any move to Escondido, of course is dependent upon whether the city OK's the building of a ballpark for the team.
