Sonoma gets local
The Sonoma Stompers of the independent Pacific Association have been sold to local residents in time for the upcoming 2015 season, this according to Ballpark Digest. Eric and Lani Gullotta, Sonoma residents want to bring a local feel to the Stompers ball club. “Local ownership will bring some much needed life to this team,” Gullotta said. “The prior out of town ownership put together a great ball club, but a local owner is what is needed to bring Sonoma an entertaining and successful team, and an even better place for families and fans of all ages to spend their summer.”
