Miles Wolff, commissioner of the indy pro American Association, was in Fargo (ND) Saturday to see how things are going this season for the league’s Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks at Newman Outdoor Field. Wolff, who hadn’t been back to the 17-year-old stadium in around a decade, came away impressed at how well the stadium has held up. (We totally agree, as we visited in 2002 and 2011.)
During his visit, Wolff discussed league expansion. While there were no concrete target markets mentioned, Edmonton (AB) was discussed. There appears to be some mild level of interest, but Wolff made clear that he doesn’t want to see the AA turn into an airplane league.
