News for the Frontier League: River City Rascals will cease operations and the end of the season. This is not good for the FL. They've combined their All Star Game with the Cam-Am league and now there will only be 9 teams for 2020 season, unless another team leaves or the league folds. 

Ive heard rumors of a possible frontier league- Can Am merger. Ive also heard the ballpark and city are looking at putting a new team in the Frontier League to replace the Rascals.

 

Meanwhile in the American Association the Kansas City T-Bones are being evicted from their ballpark at seasons end.

I would be okay with that. It's just sad to see. But once again, it sounds like the ownership didn't take care of the team. They were locked out of the stadium by the city and were barely surviving.

Seeing this potential Frontier/Can-Am League reminds me when the Golden Baseball League merged with the Northern League and ULB around 2010...that didn’t end well for anyone and ultimately spread teams far too wide.

 

Since we’re talking Indy baseball at the moment, a new independent league is planning to start up in 2020 with a similar geographic footprint to that of the Western and Golden Baseball Leagues: the Western Association of Professional Baseball, or WAPB. They haven’t announced much yet, though they have said that they are going to announce the 8 charter members in the next few weeks and that they are going to have a schedule similar to short-season MiLB leagues (mid-June to early September). FWIW, I do like the league logo (which I can’t directly post here, but is found in greater detail here.)

The Edmonton Prospects of the WCBL, the summer collegiate league in Alberta and Saskatchewan, may be out of a home because the City of Edmonton didn’t renew the fifth year of the team’s lease at the stadium. Instead, the City put out a request for submissions on a 10 year lease for the stadium/land starting in 2020 as part of redevelopment plans for the area, which may not include a baseball stadium.

 

The Prospects are submitting a proposal and a August 15th article says there’s another group expected to pitch a proposal about moving a rookie league team up that would be affiliated with the Angels. As an Angels fan who is in Edmonton for school, that would be pretty cool but most likely not happening.

 If anything it more reminds me of the Northern League/ Northeast League merger in 1999-02. its pretty much the same footprint but i think this one could work as the Frontier and Can-Am are more stable leagues than what was the GBL/Northern League/UBL combo.
