Portland Diamond Project Preps $50M Land Offer to Bring MLB to City    

Leaders of the Portland Diamond Project, a group leading the push to bring Major League Baseball to Portland, are preparing to make a $50 million land offer to the City of Portland.

Representatives from the Diamond Project recently met with city officials to discuss the purchase of RedTail Golf Course in Beaverton for the prospective team’s stadium, reported the Portland Business Journal. The Portland Diamond Project is now negotiating to acquire the 164-acre RedTail Golf Course with the goal of creating the largest sports and entertainment district in the history of the MLB.

Other potential locations for the sports park included Lloyd Center in downtown Portland, Portland Public Schools headquarters and the Port of Portland’s Terminal 2 site, though those plans fell through. Portland is on a short list of cities that could get a team if the MLB league were to expand to 32 teams.
