Man, I would love to see a Southern League team there. The league is based in Georgia but hasn’t fielded a team in the state since the 1990 Columbus Mudcats. Macon can take their time coming up with a good plan and proposal and in a few years either Jackson or Mobile will be ripe for hearing a relocation offer. At a minimum, I can’t imagine the BayBears staying at Hank Aaron Stadium beyond their present lease, which has seven long more years left on it but I’m sure there’s a way out of that.
