Atlantic League: The independent Atlantic League is looking to add three more teams in Texas by the 2018 season to create a four-team Southwest Division that would include its only current Texas-based team called the Sugar Land Skeeters. Seven of the league's eight teams are located in the East (New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland) and a proposed Southwest Division was discussed after the Sugar Land Skeeters were added for the 2012 season. The league is reported to be in discussions with five potential ownership groups.
Maybe Virginia Beach does join eventually to round out the league at 12 teams?

Atlantic City sounds interesting, but as with all Indy League teams...I'll believe it when I see it. And I agree with you, going past 8 teams in this league doesn't seem realistic.
