KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The Unified Government of Kansas City, Kan., and Wyandotte County is considering buying the ballpark that is home to the T-Bones baseball club.

If that happens, the independent minor-league baseball team would agree to stay in Wyandotte County for 20 years.

Unified Government officials said Monday they are would use STAR bonds to buy CommunityAmerica Ballpark from Ehlert Development, which also owns the team.

The Unified Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing next month on the proposed deal.

The government officials say the deal was justified because of the team's economic benefit for the county.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1bAG6OK ) more than 265,000 people attended T-Bones games this year, and the team generates more than $5.5 million a year for the economy.
