Here is some follow-up information about the Schaumberg Flyers replacement with the American Association team slated to play in 2012:
As a result of all of this, here are the questions which still remain for the 2011 independent baseball season:
- What happens to the Flyers for 2011? Will they play in the same location as the Lake County Fielders? Some speculation exists based on this article (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/ct-met-flyers-traveling-team-20110312,0,4949791.story)
- What will happen to the Frontier League, which was waiting for the decision in order to discuss the Kalamazoo Kings status?
- Will the North American League’s already-announced schedule undergo serious revision?
- How will this affect the budgets for the teams in the NAL?
- With Laredo and Schaumberg scheduled to come into the American Association in 2012, will this make other cities being approached by the AA automatically lean toward the AA when deciding which ownership groups to award lease contracts?
- With the new Schaumberg owner-to-be already owning a team in the Frontier League, will there be some sort of beginning of an alliance between the independent leagues in future years?
Feel free to leave your comments on this situation and how it impacts all of independent baseball going forward into 2011 and beyond.
