Here’s an article that might interest a few of you that enjoy speculating about what the future might hold for the Can-Am League.
According to an article by Jason Mazda published by the Press of Atlantic City yesterday, it could have a new competitor as early as next season.
Mario Perrucci, a longtime executive with the now-defunct Atlantic City Surf, is working with Frank Boulton – president of the Atlantic League of Professional Base-ball, in which the Surf played – to bring another independent minor-league team to town….
“We’re looking at creating a sort of Atlantic League Professional Baseball 2,” said Boulton, who also owned the Surf from its inception in 1998 until 2006. “That would be some smaller venues that Atlantic City might fit into. It’s a new project that I’m taking a look at, that I’m visiting cities and talking to people about.”
So, what do you think? Can the northeast support more independent league baseball? What might a new league mean for the Can-Am League and the Atlantic League?
