EUGENE, Ore.--The Eugene Emeralds confirmed on Thursday they are in search of a new stadium, and the ballclub just might find it in Springfield.

In December, the Emeralds announced they were joining the San Francisco Giants organization to be their new Advanced-A affiliate. That meant the team was moving to a longer 132-game season instead of the typical 76.

Allan Benavide, GM of the Emeralds, says the longer schedule will cause problems for the club and their shared use of PK Park.

One of the areas being looked at, Benavides says, is the Glenwood area between Eugene and Springfield.

The club must have a new home in time for the 2025 season.
