The Joplin Blasters baseball team has filed a countersuit against its former concessions provider, Sodexo.

An earlier lawsuit, filed by Sodexo, claims the Blasters breached its concessions contract. Sodexo is demanding the unamortized amount of money put into the Blasters, and is asking for about $187,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

The Joplin Blasters denies a breach of contract, also saying Sodexo didn’t pay the Blasters commissions on sold concessions.

Both the Blasters and lawyers for Sodexo didn’t return our phone calls for comment on this story.
