Travel Team Baseball. A baseball tag team in the Minors
Are there any markets without a good heaping of baseball? From what I can think, the city of Portland Oregon could use some good showmen. Columbia South Carolina is working something out with a stadium being built. A part-time team in Portland and Columbia called the Coasters or Travelers could be an idea to fill time in the parks by camping some "home" games in each place. And from coast to coast they could take on teams from MLB affiliates or those in independent leagues.
Call a team that belongs to more than one town any number of names:
The American Journeyman, American Truckers, Home Runs
Trotters (neat name for a Brooklyn or Harlem team?)
Underdawgs: obviously because the players are passed up by other pipelines.
