Northern League mulling extended season
Lincoln Journal-Star - Oct 11, 2003
"Northern League owners are expected to extend the baseball season by six games during the league's fall meetings, which will be held today and Saturday in Kansas City, Kan. By adding six games to the schedule, the Northern League season will increase to 96 games. The main reason the league wants to add more games is to keep up with the Atlantic League, a rival independent league that plays a 120-game schedule."
"Another issue on the docket for the owners to hash out is realignment. Two proposals are on the table:One would keep the 2003 divisions intact, while the other would set up a North-South alignment in which Lincoln and Kansas City would be grouped with the three Chicago-area teams."
