Rockland Boulders to AtL?

Possibly as soon as 2019. This would bring the league up to 9 teams for 2019 with the assumption that the Road Warriors would need to stay to keep the league even at 10.

[quote=""toad455""]High Point officially announced for 2019. Have to wonder where the league would be if Bridgeport & Camden weren't forced out and Virginia Beach & Loudon's teams came through. That would be 12 teams, plus whatever Texas teams might join the league. Hopefully the league considers bringing back Atlantic City and adds that 2nd Texas team. I'm sure Sugarland would much prefer another team nearby to off set travel expenses.[/quote]

They began construction of the new stadium in High Point earlier this month.

Good to know. I'm hoping Rockland joins for 2019 to finally get the league past 8 teams.

I have to wonder if the league is pushing for Atlantic City to return with the likelihood of Rockland joining next season as well to even the league out at 10 teams.

They will add the Salina Stockade as a travel team

Why would they add Salina when they already have the RoadWarriors? The Stockade are owned by the Pecos league.

it's looking like Rockland will join the league in 2019. This means either the Road Warriors return for 2019 or the league adds in Atlantic City to even themselves at 10 teams.

Looks like 8 teams for 2019 with hopefully Atlantic City & Rockford joining in 2020 to finally get the league over 8 teams.
