The Can-Am League announced yesterday that four of last year’s teams will form a new division in the American Association. The league also announced that the Newark Bears will not operate for the 2014 season.
Several questions have to be answered such as:
- Will the Can-Am League have its own “title” anymore, or is the only league title going to be the American Association one?
- Will the 11th inning “speed up” rule be applicable now to AA teams, or just those in Can-Am League stadiums?
- Are any salary/roster discrepancies for the Can-Am League teams going to go under the AA rules now?
- Is Newark still, technically, part of the AA/Can-Am League with “dormant” status? Or is the team officially out of both leagues?
Please ask your questions in the comments field. They will be aggregated and the best ones sent to the league office for their answering.
