TCL Targets Louisiana for Expansion

Make no mistake about it, the Texas Collegiate League is looking to expand, and that includes venturing deeper into Louisiana to compliment the TCL’s Alexandria Aces and Acadiana Cane Cutters.  In fact, TCL President Uri Geva even mentioned last night during the live broadcast of the 2012 TCL All-Star Game that he would see a Louisiana division for the circuit.  Jim Gazzolo from the American Press would like to see a team in Lake Charles.  Read more here.

    Why no talk about Wichita Falls, which has a ballpark. Or how about the towns the TCL was instrumental in blocking baseball ( Hall of Fame League) from?

      I have visited Wichita Falls, and it remains an option. Beer is a problem. There are many viable markets, but it takes owners willing to risk capital to make it happen. The HoFL was listing markets before they were all locked in. Any blocking was not done by the current TCL but the former owner who has a legal interest.

        Why is beer a problem there but not in The Woodlands.

        Putting a team in a park without beer sales creates additional risk for the owner/operator. As an investor, you have to be willing to take that risk. Wichita Falls remains on the radar.
