    Doesn’t ellicit a lot of confidence does it? With no teams signed on yet, no owners, 2016 is unrealistic. This has been the downfall of these Mickey Mouse start up indy leagues that have failed miserably. This has all the looks of being the same…travel looks brutal as well.

    If you don’t have teams/cities secured for next summer, it’s kinda late as a lot of work needs to be done…and then Managers need time to recruit players which will be slim pickings as there is almost an over saturation of collegiate summer leagues.
