The chances of that happening are slim, at best, and if such a pipe dream did evolve, it would be met with a lot of opposition from amateur baseball ranks.The facility was built primarily for amateur baseball, not for pro baseball money-making schemes.Chuck Ciganick is director of the fledgling Mason-Dixon League of Professional Baseball, and he is searching for an ownership group interested in entering a franchise.

Coach Jim Buchan's Cougars hammered Annapolis, 13-6, Tuesday to more than cover the one-point spread.

They're going to play, probably later than sooner. But fear no more that there will be no state baseball playoffs."If it takes until August, we'll play in August, but eventually we will play the state tournament," said Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) Executive Director Ned Sparks."We will play when we can play and despite all the rain, we don't feel that we are pressed against the wall right now. The weather should break in the next day or so."It has rained every day in the month of May, postponing 101 of 108 first-round and quarterfinal baseball playoff games, but there are still five days to play the four region games before the regularly-scheduled start of the state semifinals on Tuesday.
