Frontier League announced their schedule today. Notably missing is the Traverse City Beach Bums and the Normal Cornbelters. 

 

The Beach Bums, along with their stadium, were sold to a group led by the Midwest League West Michigan Whitecaps and will play, under a new team name, in the Northwoods League next season. Here's the statement from the Beach Bums: https://traversecitybeachbums.com

 

According to this article, the Cornbelters might be moving to the collegiate league level, but no official statement yet from the Cornbelters organization. https://ballparkdigest.com/2018/09/27/normal-cornbelters-no-decision-on-2019-league/

 

I'm very upset that the Cornbelters are leaving the FL. They were my second favorite team in the league.

Accidentally labeled Whitecaps as a member of Northwoods League

Looked up Traverse City to see what they are known for and what would make a good new team name, and saw cherries mentioned in the summary paragraph. If this was Brandiose, we all know it would be the Fightin' Cherries.

Well fun fact, Traverse City gets a lot of tourists and that's why they were named the Beach Bums. If I were the new owners, I would keep the Beach Bums name, but get new logos.

Makes sense. Their old logos seem very similar to the old Daytona Cubs or Asheville Tourists logos.

Or Cherry Pickers! haha 

 

A cherry name could lead to an interesting reddish black color.  *dreams*
