SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Colorado Springs’ Triple-A baseball team is moving to San Antonio for the 2019 season, part of a series of moves by Elmore Sports Group that will cost Helena, Montana, its Pioneer League franchise.

With the Pacific Coast League team headed to San Antonio, the city’s current Double-A Texas League team will shift to Amarillo. Colorado Springs will get the short-season rookie franchise from Helena.

Elmore Sports Group announced the moves Wednesday.

The San Antonio team will retain the historic Missions name.
