Pat Williams, who helped bring an NBA team to Orlando in the 1990s, says he wants to bring a Major League Baseball club to the city.

Williams believes Orlando is more deserving than a half-dozen other cities that have been mentioned as homes to potential expansion teams.

In addition to pro basketball, the region has professional men's and women's soccer teams.

"Orlando keeps growing and sports needs to be a part of that," Williams said. "Our resume here is much stronger than those other markets."
