We don’t see his name listed anywhere in association with the new summer collegiate Midwest Farm League based in Chicago (IL), but the four teams on deck for the circuit’s 2013 inaugural season have had Jamie Toole‘s fingerprints on them in the recent past. The league is being billed as “a professional development league for current and former collegiate level baseball players.”
As you recall, Toole withdrew his Will County CrackerJacks and Illinois Lincolns from the summer collegiate Midwest Collegiate League before the end of last season amid rumors of financial problems. At the same time, he was involved with the pay-t0-play Chicago Jets. Prior to his summer collegiate ventures in the Chicago market, Toole served as the general manager of the now-defunct Joliet JackHammers (Northern League) and was co-founder and CEO of the failed South Coast League.
