Another minor-league team hopes to play ball in KC
Kansas City Star - Oct 7, 2003
"Word has it that the Frontier League is looking to expand into Kansas City — Lee's Summit, specifically — at least by 2005. Perhaps sooner. The Frontier League is a 12-team league similar to the Northern League, home to the Kansas City T-Bones. 'I think there's plenty of room in the Kansas City area for more baseball,' Frontier League commissioner Bill Lee said by phone Monday. 'For one thing, we're 40 miles from (the T-Bones).'
But the Royals, of course, would be far closer in proximity. 'We don't consider ourselves competition for the Royals,” Lee said. “We'd consider ourselves an asset.' In fact, last month the Royals signed left-hander Matt Schweitzer from the Richmond (Ind.) Roosters from the Frontier League."
