Originally set to join the Ohio-based Independent Baseball League, the start-up Hamptons Professional Baseball Club out of New York plans to launch the Federation of American Professional Baseball starting in 2015.
We don’t quite understand the reason behind having a multi-tiered circuit when simply getting one team successfully off the ground is a massive undertaking. Further, the initial focus on player salary caps reeks of a naive baseball-only focus. We would recommend the owners focus on market choice, securing a quality facility, and raising sufficient capital to successfully launch a single franchise. If the start-up nut is too pricey for a franchise in one of the existing indy pro leagues, then we would recommend discussions with the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League or Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League.

The claim is Stadium’s and franchises are being built. Stadiums? Really? Where at?
