The Unified Government of Kansas City, Kansas, and Wyandotte County served the Kansas City T-Bones with an eviction notice.

The UG cites more than $700,000 in unpaid rent and utilities as the reason for the eviction notice. That would include non-payment of rent for 4 years.

T-Bones president Adam Ehlert released a statement late in the day. He called the timing a surprise and said that the organization was “shocked by what appears to be this capricious action.”

The T-Bones have been up for sale for almost a year, but in the statement, Ehlert said that a sale would not come during the season.

The team’s regular season ends Sept. 2 and UG officials have asked that the team remove its property from T-Bones Stadium by Sept. 13.

The T-Bones currently hold second place in the American Association’s South Division, it’s possible their season could still be alive in the post-season after Sept. 13.

Game Three of the American Association’s championship series is scheduled for Sept. 14.  Games would also be played Sept. 15 and 16 if necessary in a best-of-five series.
