Allen & Company and Moag & Company retained to sell Padres

San Diego Padres Chairman John Moores announced today that the ownership group will move forward to sell the club. Steve Greenberg of Allen & Company and John Moag of Moag & Company have been retained to advise on the sale of the team and to work with prospective buyers. They have advised the club that the process could take a number of months.

"Three years ago, I made the difficult decision to sell the club, and I didn't expect to have to make that same decision again," said Moores. "I have been honored to own the San Diego Padres and have enjoyed the experience tremendously."
