NEW MINOR LEAGUE IN SEARCH OF POTENTIAL FRANCHISE TOWNS
Published December 14, 1994
Pat Gaffney, a representative of the Atlantic Coast League, has approached the Florence, SC, City Council about becoming a franchise city. The ACL is not affiliated with any major league club and is set to begin its first season in June 1995. Spartanburg, SC, has already signed as one of the league's teams. Other SC cities being courted: Sumter, Anderson, Orangeburg, and Greenwood. Also: Gastonia, NC (Denny Seitz, FLORENCE MORNING NEWS, 12/13). MORE MINOR NEWS: MD Baseball Limited Partnership Chair Peter Kirk hopes to bring a class-A team to Salisbury, MD by '96. He had hoped to start as an unaffiliated team in '95, but likely will start in '96 as an Orioles affiliate. An announcement about the team nickname will be chosen soon from 1,700 entries (Kent Baker, Baltimore SUN, 12/14).
