Watertown is just continuing to struggle with baseball. Over the past decade, it seems no matter who is there can’t satisfy the powers that be. Geographically, it’s not a great spot really for any league. The facility is the original, I was there last year and the PA system and scoreboard had issues. Reading the article, the startup ECBL seems to have their attention. They just don’t seem to have an idea up there in regards to baseball.
Watertown’s another 4 1/2 hours on the other side of Jamestown, which was a stretch geographically on its own…can’t imagine that the Prospect League would be interested in extending itself that far.
I’m sure the Prospect League would love to have a franchise there too. Makes perfect sense for their strategic plan.
