Cities That Need an MLB Team


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

22 Cedar Rapids, IA
23 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

24 Honolulu

To far from the mainland and there isn't enough of a fan base

25 Green Bay
26 Madison, WI

Wisconsin already has a team but they need a better rival

27 Tucson

Tucson is a great baseball town

28 Riverside, CA

30 Santa Ana
31 Sacramento
32 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.

33 Jacksonville

Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida and only has one pro sports team. Plus there is nothing else around Northeast Florida

34 Jersey City V 1 Comment
35 Waterford, CT
36 Concord, CA
37 San Juan, Puerto Rico

San Juan had the Montreal Expos average attendance go up by 2,000 people! San Juan deserves a baseball team and Montreal.

Sam Juan and Montreal are my picks.

38 Grand Rapids

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

39 Edmonton
40 Montgomery

Although Montgomery already has the Biscuits, a team would be very welcomed and would have a great fan base. Since there are no professional sports teams (besides minor league baseball) people would come from all across the state. So with that said there would be great attendance and tickets. Teams tipically play well when there is a strong and supportive fan base. An MLB team would also help Montgomery's population and make the grow and become more progressive.

Montgomery has no MLB Baseball team. People go to Atlanta to see the Braves. They have no sports. So if Montgomery can get a team that would be great. A good team name for Montgomery could be the Montgomery Busses. The stadium could be built off of Interstate 85, Interstate 65 or in the Downtown area with a lot of space.
