The Akron Racers could be coming back to Akron in the near future.

Former General Manager Joey Arrietta is talking to investors in an effort to form a new women’s pro softball team next year.

She still owns the name of the team and says she really wants to put a team on the field.

"I have retained the name and the rights to logos and the opportunity to put a team back on the field at Firestone Stadium and preserve the history of our organization going forward as early as 2019."
