Orlando Magic Co-Founder Announces Effort to Bring MLB Team to Orlando

According to Orlando Magic co-founder Pat Williams, Orlando could be in the market for a Major League Baseball team. He even has a name picked out already: The Orlando Dreamers.

He said in a press release: "Orlando has proven in the years since the Magic began playing in 1989 that it is every bit a big-league sports town. Now it's time to step up to the plate and make baseball happen, too."

He thinks that Orlando could gain a larger following for baseball fans than Miami or Tampa Bay.

The Rays responded to his statement by saying: "We are proud of our strong fan support in Orlando, and we're pleased to see their enthusiasm about Major League Baseball."
