    Good to hear that baseball will continue at McBride this summer. I was not aware that the River Rats had left, and I will be sad not see them play Kokomo, Terre Haute, and the new Lafayette club in the Prospect League. However, the city is closer to many Ohio cities. It would be exciting to see how the competition will be next year.

    Lots of franchise movement in that league, it seems.

    First I’ve heard about Richmond leaving the PL. There’s nothing on the PL’s website about them leaving, although their logo no longer appears.
