Manchin Applauds West Virginia Power Decision To Join Atlantic League Of Professional Baseball

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) applauded the decision by West Virginia Power to join the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball for the 2021 season. Since November 2019, Senator Manchin has worked tirelessly to protect West Virginia’s baseball teams after the restructuring of Minor League Baseball (MiLB) over the last year.

“West Virginia Power has given West Virginia families countless hours of entertainment and family time, and I am incredibly pleased that these time honored traditions will continue on in Charleston. Since November 2019 I’ve fought to save our baseball teams across the state and I am pleased that every team has found a league to call home. I am proud of the resiliency of the team and coaches and truly believe that the Atlantic League will give West Virginia Power the opportunity to grow and thrive. I look forward to seeing our team play at the Appalachian Power Park again soon.”
