Coast to Coast: FWBL Folds
If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve been writing about six former Angels minor leaguers in a new circuit called the Florida Winter Baseball League.
Skeptics, including me, didn’t think the league would last long, but we never anticipated it would fold after only fifteen games.
As expertly covered by Mark DeCotis of Florida Today, the first paychecks bounced, and the league suspended operations.
I was asked by Central Florida News 13, the local cable TV station, to do a standup interview about the league folding. Why? Because I’m around and everyone else is gone.

I’m writing more about this on my other site, SpaceCoastBaseball.com, so head over there if you’re interested.
I may be doing a piece for the local paper too. I’ll post that link if/when it’s published.
