The summer-collegiate Great South League plans to expand in 2009 into many former minor-league markets, including Columbus, Macon and Anderson.
The Great South League, a summer-collegiate circuit launched in 2005 as the Georgia Collegiate League, plans to expand to 20 teams this season and is placing teams in former affiliated and indy markets like Anderson (S.C.), Columbus and Macon.
Yesterday the league announced a team would be playing in Columbus’s Golden Park, formerly the home of the Columbus Catfish (low Class A; Sally League).
We’re not entirely sure how solid these plans are; many of the teams listed on the Website don’t yet seem to exist. But summer collegiate may be the best bet for older venues like Golden Park and Luther Williams Field to host baseball this summer.
