Stars could stay in Huntsville for 2015 season

Posted: Updated:

With the city of Biloxi, Mississippi having stadium construction issues, it's unclear where the Stars will play their 2015 season.

In January, Southern League owners approved the sale of the Stars. Many speculated the team would relocate to Biloxi with the new ownership group. Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle said he hasn't received notice that the Stars are leaving Huntsville.

Battle said he was in contact with Southern League officials as late as yesterday about whether the Stars will play next season in Huntsville. He hasn't received a definitive answer. The city of Huntsville has a contract with the team to play their 2015 season at Joe Davis Stadium. That contract was in place before the sale of the team to a Biloxi group.

Recently, Biloxi has experienced some roadblocks to building their stadium.
