Major League Expansion, Part 1

Currently, only 18 of 50 states are represented in Major League Baseball. This leaves potential for at least 32 other teams, should the sport ever decide to expand (38 if our territories were included). But what would these teams be called? Today, we will examine potential teams from the New England and Middle Atlantic regions.

Location of Field: Portland
Uniforms: Red Jersey, Red Pants with Black Pin Stripes, Red Cap

I look forward to seeing the NJ Warning versus the Hartford W.A.S.P.S. Now that will be a beat down!

Oh, Dirty Jersey! They get such a bad rap, and for what...a little toxic waste...c'mon.

I'm buying a Vermont Tree Tappers jersey, they're sweet. Hahahahaha, get it, maple syrup is sweet. I'm so funny!
