COLORADO SPRINGS — In an unexpected turn of events, Colorado Springs is in jeopardy of losing their second minor league baseball team in two years.

The New York Times recently reported that a new proposal could strip 42 MiLB franchises of their affiliation with parent clubs.

Under the agreement, the Rocky Mountain Vibes and Grand Junction Rockies would be among the organizations to lose their ties and subsequently would become defunct.

Major League Baseball stated the re-organization is essential to make the league structure more efficient and improve the overall conditions and facilities.

Both MLB and MiLB would need to approve the proposal before moving forward with any specific plan.

News 5 Sports has reached out to the Rock Mountain Vibes front office for comment and are awaiting an official announcement from the organization.
