Atlantic League realignment
The Atlantic League is looking to the future, and has re-arranged its two divisions for the 2014 season.
The Somerset Patriots and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs will switch places.
- The Patriots will move from the Freedom Division to the Liberty Division, joining the Camden Riversharks, Bridgeport Bluefish and Long Island Ducks.
- The Blue Crabs will move from the Liberty Division to the Freedom Division, joining the Lancaster Barnstormers, York Revolution and Sugarland Skeeters.
“This division alignment prepares the Atlantic League for the creation of the Western Division as teams are added in Texas, and other markets, over the next few years,” said Atlantic League President Peter Kirk in a statement. “It will also create a well-balanced travel schedule and continue to enhance fun, local rivalries amongst the four Liberty Division teams which are within close proximity of one another.”
Now if only somebody could come up with more memorable names for the Atlantic League’s current divisions…
