Hot on the heels of pulling the Yuma Panthers and Fullerton Flyers out of the indy pro North American League and taking them dark for 2012, Godfather Media, Inc. has announced the formation of the American West Baseball League (AWBL).
The new circuit, billed as a “Professional Minor Baseball Minor League,” will operate during the summer, and as an instructional league in the fall and winter. The league will sell franchises in select markets. In addition to Yuma (AZ) and Fullerton (CA), Godfather claims to have franchisees or interested parties in San Diego (CA), Palm Springs (CA), Mesa (AZ), Long Beach (CA), Irvine (CA), and Henderson (NV).
Godfather also announced that it has launched a professional athlete and coach representation agency called Elite Representation Associates (ERA).
As we have in the past, we’ll maintain a watchful eye on Godfather Media and keep you posted as the story develops.
