Eastern League Coming to Richmond?

bravessculpturerefitEastern League president Joseph McEacharn has left the door open for a new EL-affiliated Richmond baseball team.

Major League Baseball places restrictions on what can be said about new teams, because certain hurdles need to be cleared before information is made public. But judging from McEacharn’s comments to the Times of Trenton in New Jersey, the possibility is there.

Interestingly, the first time I looked and thought about Richmond, I dismissed it. It’s 110 miles from Bowie, (Md.); it’s 2 1/2 hours from Reading, (Pa.). The league has expressed interest in Richmond to Minor League Baseball. Until the process plays itself out, we will continue to monitor the process.

So despite being very close to two other Eastern League clubs, and despite the fact that Richmond is farther South than most Eastern League teams, the chance is there. We’ll have more on this story as it develops.
