Tuscaloosa, AL – Back in April, APR's Morning Edition host Brandon Hollingsworth reported on the uncertain future of Huntsville's minor-league baseball team, the Stars. The major-league Milwaukee Brewers have a contract with Huntsville that expires this year, and time is running out to either establish a new agreement or move to another city.

Mark McCarter is a sportswriter for the Huntsville Times. He's been following this story all summer, and gives Brandon an update on the negotiation process.

Hear Brandon's original report on the Stars, from April 20, 2010.
