Let's get it over with Election Day November 9, 2011
The final decision on the alcohol in Santa Fe will be voted on tonight at 7PM.
This decision will drastically effect the future of the Pecos League.
The issue at stake is alcohol in Fort Marcy Park and the support of citizens. Santa Fe has many political groups that fight anything that tries to come into town. A business could come into town and give 20 dollar bills out to the public on Alta Vista Road and there would be political groups for and against this. The facts are simply Fort Marcy sits vacant in the Summer the Pecos League is not asking for money from the city to play there and will not have any negative issues or problems by having a team there.
If alcohol is voted in then the Pecos League is set for the 2012 season with six teams and no travel team.
This also will open the door for Taos New Mexico to get a team for the 2013 season and formally put the Pecos League on the New Mexico Map.
Although the Las Cruces Vaqueros have been in operation since 2009, and the Roswell Invaders, Ruidoso Osos, Carlbad Bats and White Sands Pupfish played in 2010, no one took notice in the State of New Mexico. No one North of Interstate 40 knew the Pecos League existed until now.
A team in the Santa Fe market would really help not only the City of Santa Fe but the entire Pecos League.
This includes non New Mexico teams of Alpine and Trinidad.
If Santa Fe votes down alcohol it will be another city that had huge potential blocked by city leaders like Carlsbad and Clovis.
For those against alcohol they have little knowledge of how far the Pecos League has come in New Mexico. Alcohol is a neccessity for any professional sports team at any level. New Mexico is the center of the Pecos League and Santa Fe is the Center of New Mexico, we would love to play ball in Santa Fe in 2012. If we are unwelcome we will pack our bags and load up the truck and goto another city that welcomes us.
