Northern League expansion (Ind. Minor League Baseball)

The Northern League is gonna expand from 6 to 8 teams. One new team will be in the Chicago area, and owned by Kevin Coster. True story.

So that's 4 in the Chicagoland area now?

That's a nice little pre-made division for a convenient breakaway. :blink:

That's the first thing I thought of when I saw northern league. I remember the Joliet's bid was done (mostly) to aid in the rejuvenation of the downtown area, wonder if Coster is doing the same for his career.

If the idea is to recapture/bask in the reflected glory of Field of Dreams, Costner should have put the team in Dubuque, Iowa which is a good-sized city half an hour away from Dyersville where the actual field is located, in a region that has a ton of farm teams but few if any indie ones.

Good I hope this keeps the Northern League going because after Edmonton and Calgary left I really thought the league was going

And a sidenote I really think the Winnipeg Goldeyes should move to Single A or Double A beautiful stadium and fan support is great

the problem is, there are no affiliated leagues within bus distance. It killed the Whips in 1971, and it would kill the Goldeyes now.

At best, they should try to join the American Association, but Sam Katz's ego would never allow it.

Probably because they ripped the heart out of the NoL when they left.

The Goldeyes were invited to the party several times by Veeck and the other owners in the AA. He wanted none of it.

He also wanted a NIFL franchise in Winnipeg, so I'm thinking Sammy's sporting acumen ain't what it used to be.
