    Those are stupid names

    I’d say a 4th team n a 2nd park is on the horizon

    Holy cow…a start up league that actually paid someone to design their logos!

    You need to have six teams, a three team league seems very small. I wish the league well, could be a great ballpark to see a game next summer.

    I’ll be interested to see what their schedule looks like. I suppose each team will play four games a week with the stadium hosting a single game six nights a week. It will certainly save on travel expenses, which could then be put back into fan amenities. Will fans get tired of seeing the same team play the same team night after night? It’s an interesting concept. I’ll say it lasts no more than two seasons with this kind of team/league configuration.

    I do think it’s a model that’s close to being workable; it needs one little tweak however.

      If it does well, I could see the Frontier League putting a team there. Let the new league have their growing pains and then the FL could swoop in and add them to their “real” league.
