Two recent articles came out regarding the situation faced by the El Paso Diablos (American Association) for its future after the 2013 season. In one of the articles, team general manager Matt LaBranche was quoted as discussing the possibility of folding the team depending on the direction the city decides to go with an early termination of the lease agreement.

Since the American Association and Can-Am League both have an odd number of teams in their respective leagues this year, and since they share the same league office/commissioner structure, they are again having “inter-league” play for the 2013 season. Should El Paso be removed from the schedule after 2013 then several possibilities exist as to the steps for the 2014 season.
As news becomes available for the 2014 American Association and Can-Am League seasons, including which teams will play in which divisions then the respective news items will be posted on this site.
