As we have discussed in the past, the summer collegiate Northwoods League has been eyeing the Kalamazoo (MI) market to compliment the circuit’s Battle Creek (MI) franchise. It is now being reported that the city of Kalamazoo issued an RFP (request for proposal) to use Mayor’s Riverfront Park (formerly Homer Stryker Field), and Kalamazoo Baseball LLC representing the Northwoods League was the only suitor to submit a bid. If a deal is reached, a new franchise would begin play in 2014. Read more here. Funny — we were just discussing this in comments last week.
