Default Unified Government evicts KC T-Bones for failed payments


KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas is evicting the Kansas City T-Bones baseball team from the Community America Ball Park in Village West.


The UG says the team defaulted on agreed upon payments to both the UG and Board of Public Utilities.
The UG said the eviction letter was sent on Friday and has ordered the baseball team to leave the stadium and remove all of its property by Friday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m.
The notice of the payments was sent Sept. 14, 2018, alerting the T-Bones it was behind in making required payments, according to the UG.


The UG says they re-worked the management agreement with the T-Bones in 2017 in an effort to keep the team in the stadium. Under the agreement, the team is responsible for paying current utility bills, past due utility bills and past due payments for use of the stadium.


The team is delinquent in paying $358,439.53 in current utility payments, $328,749.77 in past due BPU costs and $75,545.10 owed under the lease agreement for use of the stadium, according to the eviction notice. The T-Bones owners have made only three out of 48 monthly payments of $1,678, making the baseball organization in default for 45 monthly payments.


The UG spent $8 million through an agreement in 2014 to buy the ballpark and make the T-Bones a tenant. Ehlert Development financed the $12 million ballpark, completed in 2003.


According to the UG, the eviction of the T-Bones from the UG owned ballpark does not erase the debts and that they reserve the right and intends to seek all remedies available to collect on the financial obligations.


In 2018, the T-Bones clinched their first American Association Championship.


FOX4 has reached out to the team for comment.

We are shocked by what appears to be this capricious action.

We have been in close communication with the UG, keeping them apprised of our status as we work toward a sale of the club. Today’s timing is the real surprise, as we’ve shared publicly—and with the UG—that a sale will not be completed or announced during the season.

Baseball continues this week, as we’re in the midst of a franchise-record winning streak (12 games!), and hopefully into the playoffs as we defend our league championship. We remain optimistic that a solution will be reached in the short-term, to retain baseball in a great market, for the long-term.

The millions of fans who have enjoyed our product over nearly two decades should share our optimism for the future as we work to close the sale to the next operator of this franchise.
could be interesting

I like how the team is acting like they are a victim or are somehow being done wrong by the UG. It's pretty simple, you pay your bills on time, PERIOD. If you don't, then consequences happen.

Unified Government give T-Bones 30-day extension from being evicted

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Unified Government of Wyandotte County has granted the Kansas City T-Bones Baseball team a 30-day extension from being evicted from T-Bones Stadium in the Village West area of Kansas City, Kansas.


The T-Bones were given notice last month that the team would be evicted from the stadium on September 13 at 5 p.m. for not paying past utility bills and other agreed upon payments.


The UG granted the one month extension after the T-Bones and the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball paid the UG $50,000 toward the back debts while the team and association negotiate the sale of the team to new ownership.


“The T-Bones, the American Association of Independent American Baseball, and the Unified Government have been committed to playing the 2020 season and beyond,” Joshua Schaub said, the Commissioner of the American Association.


Schaub said this agreement with the UG is a good reinforcement of that mutual commitment.

The UG owns the stadium and in 2017 reworked the management agreement with the T-Bones in an effort to keep the team in the stadium.


Under the agreement, the T-Bones are responsible for paying current utility bills, past due utility bills and past due payments for use of the stadium. The T-Bones failed to make most of those payments, according to the UG.
Team owners have stated they are in the process of selling the team and indicated the back debts could be paid when the sale is confirmed.


The extension gives the T-Bones and American Association 30 days to negotiate and complete the sale of the team and payment of the debt.


The payment of the $50,000 and extension of the eviction does not relieve the T-Bones organization of paying the remainder of the debt owed.


“The Unified Government looks forward to the sale of the team to new owners and repayment of the debt. More importantly, we look forward to keeping a baseball team in our stadium because we view the team as a community asset and an important part of our successful Village West tourism district,” stated County Administrator Doug Bach.
The 30-day extension runs until October 13 at 5 p.m.

Unified Government locks T-Bones stadium, evicts team for failing to pay back debt

KANSAS CITY, Kan. —
The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas has officially evicted the Kansas City T-Bones from their publicly owned stadium in Village West.


The Unified Government officials changed locks and padlocked the gates Monday morning after the club failed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in utility payments and back rent.



The UG originally evicted the T-Bones on Aug. 20, but an extension to Sunday was granted to provide the T-Bones more time to come up with the back payments.


The UG said in a news release in August it made the move because the ball club defaulted on agreed-upon payments to the Unified Government and Board of Public Utilities.
“The notice of default was sent Sept. 14, 2018, alerting the T-Bones it was behind in making required payments,” the news release from UG said. “The Unified Government re-worked the management agreement with the T-Bones in 2017 to keep the team in the stadium.


“Under the agreement, the T-Bones are responsible for paying current utility bills, past due utility bills and past due payments for use of the stadium.”

The UG said as of the date of the eviction notice, the T-Bones were delinquent in paying $358,439,53 in current utility payments, $328,749.77 in past due Board of Public Utilities costs and $75,545.10 owed under the lease agreement for use of the stadium.


The UG said the T-Bones owners' have made only three out of 48 monthly payments of $1,678, making the baseball organization in default for 45 monthly payments.
At the time of the public announcement, T-Bones president Adam Ehlert said he was shocked by the decision.


"We have been in close communication with the UG, keeping them apprised of our status as we work toward a sale of the club," he said.


Ehlert said the timing of the announcement by the UG was the surprise as the team has been discussing a sale with the government.


"We remain optimistic that a solution will be reached in the short-term, to retain baseball in a great market, for the long-term," Ehlert said. "The millions of fans who have enjoyed our product over nearly two decades should share our optimism for the future as we work to close the sale to the next operator of this franchise."
