    They still haven’t made a decision and now their website is down.

      Not sure if it is their decision at this point. Out of the three leagues they mentioned the NWL already was not interested, the PL is at ten teams and had scheduling problems last year with eleven, and the GL is composed of smaller organizations that probably dont want to spend the extra money to travel outside of their footprint

    Normal’s average this year of 1857 would be fine for the Prospect League. I doubt it would drop much lower playing in a collegiate league.
