Maine's only professional baseball team, the double-A Portland Sea Dogs, have been sold.

According to the KJ, Diamond Baseball Holdings, which owns several other minor league baseball teams, has purchased the Sea Dogs.

Portland Sea Dogs chairman, Bill Burke, whose family has owned the team since their inaugural season in 1994, made the announcement of the sale on Tuesday morning.

The press release says, in part:

We are very pleased to have found in DBH an ownership team with deep experience in minor league baseball and strong commitments to Portland, the Red Sox and, most importantly, Geoff Iacuessa and his remarkable front office staff.

At this point, it looks like not much will change with the team.  The operation will continue to be managed by the same leadership team, the team will continue to play at Hadlock Field, and will remain the double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

Other teams owned by Diamond Baseball Holdings include the Iowa Cubs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, the Memphis Redbirds, the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees.
