The CEO of the Arizona Diamondbacks continued to stress that the team is staying put in the state amid a recent report that found the team signed a nondisclosure agreement with the city of Las Vegas last year.
Derrick Hall told 12 News on Friday that the report from the Las Vegas-Review Journal was the result of the city expressing interest in the team—not necessarily the other way around.
“There were a lot of places outside of Phoenix and outside of Arizona that expressed interest when we had this (request for proposal) process, it’s them merely expressing that interest,” Hall told Team 12’s Bruce Cooper.
“But for us, we’re focused on Arizona and we want to stay in Arizona. We’re seeing what we can do here in this building or anywhere else in Maricopa County,” Hall continued.
