Ballpark Digest had a brief article the other day regarding the proposal for a new stadium:
What is of interest is that the GBL has had teams playing in college-owned (or influenced) stadiums for years due to the facilities issue in the area. The Long Beach Armada played through the 2009 season in a college facility which was part of the reason why the team is no longer operating, although it is probable that many other factors existed.
In the Texas market, many college coaches who have influence with college baseball stadiums have said “over my dead body” when it comes to an independent baseball team leasing their facilities during the summer. It may exist elsewhere outside of Texas and California, so feel free to leave your comments.
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.
