I believe the most likely of current teams to move eventually is Huntsville. The owner doesn't want to relocate so we'll see how that plays out. However, if I'm reading things correctly, Huntsville's lease expires after the 2014 season. Jackson's lease on the park is seven more years out and the SL prez frowns on broken leases. Back to Biloxi...The Biloxi Sun reports that the architectural plans will be submitted in February 2014. This from an October 16th article. Huntsville has been the lowest attendance consistently for years. A semi-educated guess would be that they are the team most likely to move. Should be an interesting saga to follow.
