Independence Baseball League IBL


missouri tigers

Recommended Posts

I have decided to start a concept baseball league. Called the Independence Baseball League or IBL.

The IBL will have 3 divisions with 4 teams in each division. The divisions will be called the Eastern, Central and Western Divisions.

This league is meant to be an independent pro baseball league (Not affiliated with the MLB or any Minor Leagues). Much like the Frontier or Northern League)

Below are the league logos I have so far-

So far, I only have 1 team that I have started on, but I have a few cities in mind for the IBL

Here is a list of cities that I am contemplating:

EAST

-Charlotte NC

-Orlando FL

-Richmond VA

- ? ? ?

CENTRAL

-Lincoln NE

-Oklahoma City OK

-Austin TX

- ? ? ?

WEST

-Sacramento CA

-Salt Lake City UT

-Las Vegas NV

- ? ? ?

Feel free to add suggestions for cities or team names, as I'm not the most creative when it comes

to naming teams.

Good suggestions, I should have added that I am almost done with my concept for the team in Charlotte, they will be called the Carolina Vipers.

I always intended on making the team in Charlotte be named "The Carolina _______," much like the Hurricanes or Panthers

I like the suggestion of Buffalo NY, I'm not sure why I didn't think of that.

Not sure how many teams you would like . But I always think of cities that have or had other pro teams but not baseball , or just good sized cities that could support sports.

East - Hartford , Louisville, Montreal , Buffalo

Central - Nashville, Des Moines , Little Rock , Omaha , San Antonio

West - Portland , Boise , Spokane , Albequerque

Just some ideas

I'm curious what is your criteria for selecting markets? Are you just picking cities that you like or do you have a method that youre using? Lincoln seems very small compared to the other markets.

I am trying to pick the largest cities that do not have any MLB teams, and ignoring if they have any minor league teams.

A team in Lincoln is not set in stone, I am open to another market taking it's place, including Omaha or Des Moines

My only problem with it is having the V logo on the hat, I personally don't like it when teams use their team name initial on the hat instead of the state or city initials. Have you thought about it being the Virginia Vipers?

If other people think it is a problem, then I will consider changing it, but I personally don't have a problem with teams using their city and team names' initials in a logo

such as the Rockies CR logo
