In Monroe, ULM has a baseball team, but I'm not sure if Monroe ever had minor league.

Alexandria has a minor league baseball team, the Alexandria Aces. The Aces joined a new league this year (the old league went bankrupt) and will play teams from Texarkana, Corpus Christi, and other Texas cities. At one time, the Aces were the farm club for the San Diego Padres.

It's all about the market. Lexington has shown it can support baseball, at the Single A level. Appearantly investors dont think Monroe can. I would have to agree since Shreveport lost its affliated team. Maybe Monroe could get into an indy loop but i dont see it happening.

Louisiana as a whole is a football state. I can tell you that Monroe has a big racing following. We have a drag racing track and a pro speedway which are currently in talks of making big steps towards indy or nascar. I have to check it out, but im not into racing. Im a Saints fan though!!!!!!!!

oh yeah, one more thing.....Monroe loves fighting sports also like mix martial arts, boxing and wrestling. We have several events here throughout the year as far as fighting sports. I just dont think we are into baseball around here as much. The Dixie Baseball League, but thats a big high school graduates tournament that happens every summer, seems exciting. Its has me interested a little even though Im not a baseball fan.
