Governor asks Major League Baseball to save Ohio farm team

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is asking the commissioner of Major League Baseball to save an Ohio minor league baseball team on a list of clubs proposed for elimination. DeWine, a Republican who with his family owns a minor league franchise in Asheville, North Carolina, in a letter sent Friday to Commissioner Rob Manfred said the Mahoning Valley Scrappers in northeast Ohio has a history of charitable giving with more than 4 million fans attending games since the club was formed in 1999. The Scrappers are a short-season Class A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
