    It was confirmed Wednesday that the sale of the majority interest in the operating rights to the Louisville Bats has been finalized. Stuart and Jerry Katzoff of MC Sports Acquisition LLC, completed the deal with Bats owners Dan Ulmer, Ed Glasscock, Gary Ulmer, Ken Huber, Steve Trager and Mike Brown. The two parties reached an agreement in which Gary Ulmer will stay on as President and the current ownership group will remain minority partners.

    MC Sports also owns the Bowling Green Hot Rods of Bowling Green, KY and the Reno Aces in Reno, Nevada. Stuart Katzoff voiced the group’s excitement of the sale saying, "We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with the Louisville community and especially with the dedicated fans of this very successful baseball team.”
