HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Are the Huntsville Stars moving to Mississippi? News of a possible move started swirling on social media late Tuesday afternoon.

Biloxi is in the process of trying to get a new ballpark in hopes of luring a team in 2015. That team, according to a series of tweets made Tuesday, is the Huntsville Stars.

A spokesman for the Mississippi governor's office said he could not confirm the reports.

A spokesperson for Mayor Tommy Battle's office said Tuesday they have heard nothing beyond the rumors, but said the Stars have a contract with the city through 2015 and "we expect them to honor that."

The mayor's office also said they have been "extremely frustrated" with Stars owner Miles Prentice, a lawyer in New York, and any efforts to work with Prentice have been "difficult."

Prentice was unavailable for comment Tuesday.
