Southern NJ, effectively in the "Pine Barrens" between the ocean and Philadelphia.

Another area that may work is the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area of PA. Its cost of living is around, if not just below the national average, it has minor league baseball, it has a pretty strong college presence due to Lehigh University and Lafayette College and it is within a couple of hours of NYC and Philadelphia.

Perhaps the cities that these teams are located in may help as well: Teams | MiLB

Seems to me the surrounding areas of Frederick, MD fits the bill to a tee. You can find cheaper housing (200k below) outside the city limits (smaller city, a few colleges, restaurants, theater, Frederick keys baseball, all the pro sports x2 in the bigger cities, etc). Yet you're 45-60 minutes to DC and Baltimore for everything the bigger cities can offer. Great jobs all around in Frederick area and greater metro area.

Don't know a ton about it, but Fredericksburg, VA might work. Historic town, fairly progressive and diverse, located between Richmond and Washington DC (an hour drive to both and there's commuter rail service to DC as well). Looks like a decent downtown area from the pictures. Probably worth checking out.

What you are describing in the classic upstate NY/New England college town, many of which are within striking distance of much larger cities. New Paltz, NY is the first one that comes to mind

The cities that this league plays in may also work: Teams | MiLB

The same could be said for the cities in this league: Teams | MiLB

I would recommend New Jersey except good luck on the price part. Seriously, though, for everything else we got you covered. Literally everything else.

You can probably find something really cheap in Port Republic.
