Sounds like they do deserve it. However, like the other guys explained, very well I might add, it wouldn't be feasible at all. A good case in point right now, the AA Carolina Mudcats. Over the 20 plus years the Mudcats have been in the Southern League, team relocations in the league have gradually left Carolina on an island. The closest opponent to Carolina in this league is about an eight hour bus ride away. This is one of the primary reasons the owner opted to sell the team to Pensacola ownership. It is too expensive to be a part of a league that involves as much travel as Carolina has to do.
Next year this franchise will be ideally located for the Carolina High A League.
