The Arizona Diamondbacks could be looking for a new home on television soon. Diamond Sports, which owns Bally Sports, the network that broadcasts Diamondbacks' games, asked a judge to reject its television contract with the team in an emergency motion Thursday, according to Front Office Sports.
Diamond Sports filed for bankruptcy in March, and is allegedly more than $8 billion in debt. In June, the company was ordered to pay out its television contracts with the Diamondbacks, Cleveland Guardians, Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers in full.
Diamond Sports filed an emergency motion Thursday asking a judge to reject that contract. The company was reportedly supposed to make its next payment to the Diamondbacks on July 1.
