In recent days, IndependentBaseball.net has received several requests about a new independent league for 2011 called the Pecos League. They asked because they saw it mentioned in other articles covering the minor league baseball industry.
Here is the temporary website:
IndependentBaseball.net has talked with those who may be involved with this league, and nothing is yet formalized in terms of a legal entity nor is there anything yet to report. What we learned is that the prospective teams will have a meeting to discuss several issues during the first two weeks of August; and they will decide upon the most realistic sites for teams, the league structure (franchise owned vs. centrally-owned), pay scale for players, number of games, any formal arrangements with other independent leagues to move players to higher levels, etc.
IndependentBaseball.net will keep you informed of Pecos League developments and what the league (assuming it operates) will bring to the independent professional baseball industry.
There are several good books about the independent professional baseball leagues. You are welcome to see a list of suggestions through this link: Books Get notified of upcoming independent baseball tryouts from either of these services: first service or the second service. Prospective players can find some helpful resources here We will be providing a growing list of possibly helpful tips and suggestions on various baseball information.
