Charlotte: Visiting the Possibility of more Pro Sports

It has been pretty much expressed by Major League Baseball that an expansion is unlikely to occur anytime soon.  I would be hoping for the Rays to relocate.  But it seems like a fat chance because Tampa Bay has one of the largest television markets and that's very important to baseball.  Maybe some stadium thing will fall through in baseball-bored- migrated-snowbirdy Florida.  There are likely more NY fans in Tampa or much of the Citrus State anyway.

One would have to expect that the Queen City of the south is not far off from landing Big League Soccer for the Carolinas.  I hear the junior stuff going on down there is robust.


MLB and MLS are missing but sure to come.  With  a cup to Carolina hockey's name you will likely have banners hanging from an arena for years to come.  You have shamed the like of Atlanta and showed the like of Lighning. 

As American as apple pie, I have no doubt Carolinians are.  And so the pie in the sky is definitely Major League Baseball someday.

Take a look at some alternative views below:
