San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro is making his case for bringing a Major League Soccer franchise to the city, praising the San Antonio Scorpions for the team's contribution in starting a fan base that he said would support the team.

In a letter to MLS Commissioner Don Garber, Castro took the opportunity to brag about his city. Garber then wrote back and promised there would be ample discussion about the possibilities of an MLS franchise in San Antonio.
