22 Hartford

It's a small market, but there are proven sports fans thanks to the Whalers. It could give a nice New England rivalry between Boston.

23 Durham, NC

Durham has no pro-sports at all. They need a MLB Team. This is a perfect city for one. Their Innerleague rival could be Raleigh. There is a lot of open space on Interstate 85 and Interstate 40. Those open spaces would be a great place to build the Stadium. Some good team names could be the Durham 85ers,40ers. I would be really happy if this happened.

24 Lexington, KY

Lexington is growing...It's a huge sports town Uk basketball sold out every game!

25 Cedar Rapids, IA
26 Virginia Beach

Maybe the team should be in Norfolk because they're the city in the area that has a minor league team.

The city would make a ton of money off the beach crowd with a baseball team - andrewerdna100

27 Memphis

The question is if Memphis were actually to get an MLB Team, where would a proposed stadium be located at? Downtown Memphis is not as large as other major cities. Then make a new NL Division called the NL South. Memphis should add other the Big 3 Pro-Sports besides the Memphis Grizzlies. The way Memphis supports the Grizzlies, there should be no reason why an MLB, NFL, & NHL Team shouldn't get that same type of support.

Memphis should get a team because the people in Memphis go to St. Louis for the Cardinals. If Memphis gets a team, the Innerleague rival would be Nashville. In my opinion the Memphis team should be in the National League and the Nashville team in the American League.

FOR THE LAST TIME, WHY IS THIS ON HERE TWICE?

28 Madison, WI

Wisconsin already has a team but they need a better rival

29 Tucson

Tucson is a great baseball town

33 Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids is great city for baseball, could play at Fifth Third

34 Edmonton

They really need more than just the Oilers and the Eskimos

35 Santa Ana
36 Birmingham

Birmingham has no MLB team. The closest team is the Atlanta Braves. So people should not have to go all the way to Atlanta all the time for MLB. The Birmingham team should be in the American League.

If Birmingham were to ever get a team, I'd put them in the American League. That way the Atlanta Braves would have an main cross-division InterLeague Rival to play against. Then they don't have to play the Blue Jays & Red Sox every two years anymore for cross-division InterLeague games anymore. I would name the team the Birmingham Chimpanzees. I'd put them in a new AL South Division.

37 Sacramento
38 Raleigh

Raleigh has NHL Team the Carolina Hurricanes. Raleigh needs more sports like MLB. So I think Raleigh can get good support. The Innerleague rival would be Durham. The Raleigh team would be in the American League and the Durham team would be in the National League.
