Old Orchard Beach has already failed in both the NECBL and the Futures League (as well as indy ball and affiliated ball.)
Doesn’t mean someone won’t ignore all of the obvious signs and plop some other godforsaken team in there again, though.
Well said Eastman. I did some research, it is a market that won’t work. It seems that’s what the indy league that tried to go in there tried to do. Take old markets that happened to have a park and swindle them into thinking this business model would work.
A league of their own
I would assume the NECBL, since they are the only league in their footprint which hasn’t already released their 2016 schedule.
The NECBL is collegiate summer, this team wants to be Indy Pro.
They should go the college route. Its a better product and more feasible financially
