Newest Member of the Pecos League: Ruidoso Osos

Devon TeepleAnalyst IJanuary 16, 2011

To continue my latest string of Independent baseball news, the new upstart Pecos League has introduced its newest club: Ruidoso Osos. 

Ruidoso fills the void left by the Clovis Pioneers who unfortunately will be left out in the cold after John Harris departed to run the Amarillo Sox of the American Association. 

According to the Pecos League website, Ruidoso is an ideal location, located in a tourist hot spot.  Makes sense to me! 

Everything is a go for the Osos for now, yet this is not the best way to start off the new year. 

The Pecos League literally took the place of the Continental League, probably the least known of all Indy leagues, and in my estimation could have inherited all the problems that came with it.  Quite possibly a brand new start is what everyone needed.

Now that the Golden Baseball League, Northern League and United League merged to form the North American Baseball League, you must, in all sincerity, wonder if the new kids on the block can hang in there for a full season.  I would love to see it. 

Look at their motto, for instance: “The league's high power offenses are fueled by high altitudes and smaller ballparks.” 

While the Pecos League is new and presenting a product very familiar with millions of people, it might have just found its niche. 

Behind the eight-ball and with all the odds stacked against them, this organization might surprise many, and that is exactly what we are hoping for!
