The manager of TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha has won a court appeal that could help it attract a new professional baseball team.

The Nebraska Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority did not violate a contract with a company that was working to bring a team to the park. The relationship with Fast Ball Sports LLC fell apart, and the company filed a lawsuit against the ballpark managers.

The decision upheld a Douglas County judge's ruling, but it can still be appealed to the Nebraska Supreme Court. The decision lifts one obstacle in the park manager's effort to bring a different professional team to the park.
