Texas Has a New Minor League Baseball Team

Yes friends, there’s a new minor league baseball team here in the Lone Star State. It’s the Sugar Land Skeeters, in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land, where else.  Better yet, the Skeeters are kicking off their inaugural season tonight with a four game weekend series against the York Pennsylvania Revolution.

Sugar Land officials were hoping to attract one of the Houston Astros’ minor league affiliates to the new stadium, the same way the Dallas suburb of Frisco lured a farm club of the nearby Texas Rangers in 2003.

Unfortunately, former Astros owner Drayton McLane rejected that idea.  McLane said it would hurt his team’s attendance to have another pro team so close to Minute Maid Park.

Sugar Land officials said OK, who needs Major League Baseball anyway. So they formed their own independent team, built a $40 million dollar stadium with 7000 seats, and joined a league of independent unaffiliated teams called the Atlantic League.
