Acccording to baseballamerica.com Major League Baseball is now denying that it paid seven figures for the domain name Rockies.com
“A previous version of this story stated that MLB had paid a seven-figure sum for the rights to the Rockies.com domain name. ”
“Matthew Gould said the figure was inaccurate, though he said he could not release the correct amount due to confidentiality agreements”.
A couple of days ago it was widely reported that Rockies.com was purchased by MLB for $1.25 Million dollars.
I looked up Matthew Gould and he is listed on Linkedin as an employee of MLB.com, as a VP of Corporate Communications for the office of the Commissioner ”
I sent a message to Mr. Gould and will let you know what I find out.
