Now you do – buy stock in an independent minor league baseball team!
The Midwest Sliders of the Frontier League plan to sell bundles of 100 shares of stock at $10 per share to finance a $9.5 million ballpark project in Waterford Township, Michigan. A maximum of 500,000 shares will be made available at a total cost of $5 million.
For now, the Sliders are calling Eastern Michigan University home. The team is currently averaging 246 fans per game.
For the record, I asked my wife if we could spare $1,000 to buy stock in a minor league baseball team. She said no. But I would happily take part in a Bus Leagues conglomerate. Come on, 100 readers, $10 per reader – how can it go wrong?
