RECOMMENDATION

Discuss and consider proposal of the AAA Mexican League Team, Aguilas de Veracruz, to lease the County Baseball Stadium facility from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014, and related matters.

BACKGROUND
The Aguilas de Veracruz Team has been in existence since 1937 and is one of the most well respected baseball teams in the Mexican League. The Aguilas are owned by Jose "Pepe" Mansur who has been a owner of Mexican League teams for the last thirty years.

The Houston Astros recently announced that the Astros will host the Aguilas de Veracruz team for two exhibition games at Minute Maid Park in March 2014.
DISCUSSION
Mr. Jose Mansur would like to have more exposure in the United States for young Latino baseball players.  He is proposing to lease the County baseball facility to conduct practice sessions during the off-season and to field a Team in one of the Independent Leagues playing baseball in south Texas. 

The basic terms of the offer include: 
  >  $60,800 annual rental fee ($5,066.67/mo).
  >  Full use of the Stadium year around.
  >  Team responsible for field maintenance, janitorial services inside facilities, cleanup of grounds and parking
      areas after each event.

Should the Court approve this, a detailed contract will be brought back to the Court for approval.
