And that commissioner will never get involved in a league that doesn't have a salary cap!

Worcester is maybe in the new league, the Diamond League. No Atlantic League for us.

Atlantic League founder and CEO Frank Boulton today announced the formation of a new professional baseball league that will debut next year, and he said he expects Worcester to become a member.
Quote:

The Diamond League, like the Atlantic League, will not be affiliated with Major League Baseball. The Diamond League is scheduled to field six teams that will play 60 games each in 2014, then field eight teams that will play 84 games each in 2015. Rosters will be composed of players aged 21-25 who have less than five years of professional experience. Boulton wants to visit all prospective league cities by Aug. 1 and select the cities later in the month to allow enough time to market them for next season.

So... it seems like it's a level above summer collegiate ball (?)

No Loudoun in 2014. I appears the league will wait until 2015 to add in Loudoun and likely 3 other expansion teams. Fort Worth appears to be the most likely addition for 2015 along with Loudoun. I have to wonder if the league has any other Texas expansion possibilities for 2015.

Some bad news here. http://www.philly.com/philly/news/lo...nk_s_suit.html

could we possibly see 12 teams in the Atlantic League for 2015? Loudoun should all be set, along with expansion teams likely in place for Fort Worth, TX & Virginia Beach. I'm sure the league would like to secure a third Texas team, if not, I could see the return of the Road Warriors to keep the league even at 12 teams.

Loudoun still seems doubtful to ever get off the ground. But Virginia Beach seems all but set for 2015. Virginia Beach plus another Texas team would bring the league to 10 for 2015.

There aren't any signs of life from Loudoun.

so it looks like it'll be just Virginia Beach being added in for 2015. There's been nothing rumored of another Texas team, so does the league add in the RoadWarriors again for 2015??

Nothing this year.
 
http://lancasteronline.com/sports/ba...l#.VCGd91YwAkU, Once again nobody has been able to get a park built and it will be the same 8 teams as last year. I would guess the Diamond League is dead for 2015, too, as nothing's been posted on the website. The Atlantic League's got lots of big plans but they never seem to come to fruition as one new team always seems to disenfranchise a poor performer to keep the league at 8. My guess would be that if Fort Worth and Virginia Beach do enter the league in 2016 it will be Bridgeport and Camden being bumped out.
