MLB Commissioner Manfred says Vegas for possible expansion

April 20, 2017 - 5:19 pm

As NHL and NFL bring teams to Las Vegas, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred sees the city as a potential option for relocation.

"If we were looking at relocation, Las Vegas would be on the list," Manfred told media members Thursday.

Last year the NHL awarded Las Vegas an expansion team, the Golden Knights. The NFL last month approved the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas.

Manfred acknowledged having those two leagues set up shop in Las Vegas did change the way MLB views the city's ability to host professional sports teams.
