Here is an article from a local Abilene, Texas website which reviewed the recent 4-game series played there by the United League:
Of interest is the concept of a new stadium. As reported on this site in recent weeks, there seems to be a nationwide trend developing of constructing new stadiums for independent baseball teams; and there also has been some “push back” from certain cities about using public financing for any such construction.
Abilene used to be the home of the Prairie Dogs of the old Texas-Louisiana League. Whether the fans will show their support for the concept of bringing back independent baseball to the city is still to be determined. If so, the next question is whether the ULB or another league can garner the private financing required to construct a stadium.
Hopefully this can be the case so that independent baseball has a chance to go back to a market where it existed for several years.
