The Indy League merry-go-round continues as the Pacific Association has announced a new franchise to replace the league’s travel team.
The Vallejo Admirals will take the place of the traveling Sonoma County Grapes. The new team will play at Wilson Park which will receive a facelift.
The team is owned by Redwood Sports and Entertainment, which also owns the San Rafael Pacifics and the Sonoma County Grapes. The group will look for a permanent home for the Grapes for the 2014 season in hopes of having a six team league.
The Pacific Association was formed this offseason after the North American Baseball League folded. The teams that make up the PA were the Northern Division of the NABL in 2012.
