Roswell Invaders will consider moving to NMMI for 2012 season and beyond
A group of Roswell Invaders loyal supporters have begun to make their push for the Invaders to move into NMMI for the 2012 season and beyond.
The group claims NMMI is located in the heart of Roswell and has a much better facility than Coca Cola Park. The surface the lighting and the location are far better at NMMI than at Coca Cola Field.
The Pecos League previously met with NMMI in 2010 before agreeing to occupy Coca Cola Park.
The New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) is the nation's only state-supported, co-educational college preparatory 4-year military high school and junior college.
The Roswell Invaders won the inaugural Pecos League Championship and have a strong fan base.
Coca Cola Park was home to the original minor league teams in the 1960's that occupied Roswell.
Coca Cola Park offers one of the best club houses in the Pecos League and great parking.
However, Roswell does not have a municipal license at the park and
the lease at Coca Cola Park is four times higher than any other lease in the Pecos League's New Mexico/Colorado Teams.
A decision will be made in January it will be interesting to see how NMMI would handle beer sales but it is possible as NMMI is in process of possibly selling beer at the golf course when class is out of session.
