Also, Beacon Sports has reached an agreement in principle with @EasternLeague to bring a double A team to Ottawa for the 2014 season!

I move to Indonesia as we get a AA team? My frigging luck...

I'd be a season ticket holder for AA ball, easily. I might not have had the time for a full season (what with kids and stuff), but a half-season would have been a guarantee.

HUGE news for Ottawa. I'm super stoked. I just need you guys to actually go to the games so we STILL have a team in 3 years, when I get back, ok?

AA baseball in Ottawa can absolutely work. There's such a huge void in the sports landscape that a AA team can easily fill. The Fat Cats did a good job of keeping baseball on life support over the past few years (as without the FC's, Baseba would have all but completely died, IMO), now hopefully this new AA team can get baseball back where it should be, healthy and at least somewhat popular.
