    I don’t want to do their feasibility study for them but here I go. The only affiliated league Dothan fits geographically is the Southern League and it’s too small a market for AA ball. It’s market size might fit low-A or Rookie ball but it’s too far away for either the Sally or Appy league. That leaves indy ball or summer college and currently there aren’t any such leagues in the region. In fact the region is rife with abandoned baseball markets – Huntsville, Columbus, Macon, Albany and soon Savannah. Unless there’s some new league in the works I’d have to conclude it’ll be very difficult to find a tenant for a new ballpark.
