Major League Baseball has purchased the domain name for $1.2 million, according to the deal’s broker, Venture Capital Group Ltd.

The domain did belong to Tourism Canadian Rockies, which plans to move to, according to the company. The Colorado Rockies is a baseball team in the MLB.

Domain Name Wire reported that the domain was up for sale last September, with Andrew Allemann predicting a sale to the MLB at price of $200,000 to $400,000.

According to Allemann, the MLB now only needs four .com domains to complete its collection of team names. now redirects to

January 11 Update: The sale price of $1.2 million is now looking very dubious indeed.

  1. Of course, with new gTLDs, the days of high .com valuations are over…..errrrr, I guess the .MLB application by Major League Baseball didn’t affect their appetite for .com domains. 🙂

    This is a fair price for a great asset which can be used against many different industries. Many deals like this have happend, but are never reported. hmmmm .com rules
