Chiefs GM thinks Mets deal would help team grow

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Governor Andrew Cuomo joined both the New York Mets and Syracuse Chiefs organizations at NBT Stadium on Tuesday to formally announce the union of the two teams.

Both the Governor’s office and New York Senator Chuck Schumer confirmed on Thursday that the Mets intended to buy the Chiefs.

The only potential hurdle now is a shareholders vote on Nov. 17 – but all of the involved parties anticipated that the sale would go through without any problems.

The move consolidates the Mets and their farm system in New York State – with their Single A club in Brooklyn, and their Double AA club in Binghamton.

The Governor hopes to see NBT Stadium become a destination for Mets fans from other Upstate New York cities.

Chiefs General Manager Jason Smorol said the club had reached the limit of its growth as a community owned operation, and that selling the team to the Mets means long-term viability.
