Winston-Salem Dash will soon be under new ownership

The franchise has entered into an agreement with an organization that owns and operates select Minor League clubs affiliated with Major League Baseball.

Ownership of the Winston-Salem Dash is changing hands. The franchise has entered into an agreement to become part of Diamond Baseball Holdings (DBH). Minor League Baseball still needs to consent to the sale and standard closing conditions must be met, but the team says it expects the transaction to be completed “promptly.”

Billy Prim, managing partner of the Dash ownership group, says DBH shares his vision for the future and passing the baton will benefit fans.

“DBH is widely known for its focus on investing in the local communities where it operates with a commitment to providing affordable, family-friendly entertainment and unforgettable experiences, and I’m confident in their ability to do the same for Winston-Salem.”

The owner might be changing, but don’t worry, Dash fans. President and General Manager Brian DeAngelis will continue to lead employees. The team will remain a High-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, and they will continue to play at Truist Stadium. DeAngelis says Opening Day on Tuesday, April 9 will be “the beginning of what will become a new standard of entertainment in Winston-Salem.”
