The longtime Pirates affiliate (1995-2009) seems like it might vanish, as the Braves move the team to Wilmington, North Carolina. (There's already a Wilmington team in the Carolina League, but that one's in Delaware.) First the Pirates moved their Class A+ team to Bradenton, and now it appears the Carolina League could be leaving the town entirely. Lynchburg had the second-worst attendance in the Carolina League last season. A mediocre attendance figure in the Carolina League would be a great one in the Florida State League, of course, but the Braves might well do a lot better in Wilmington. If the deal goes through, Lynchburg will try to find a new team to host, but not in the Carolina League. A quote in the article suggests they could get a short-season team, which I imagine would put them in the Appalachian League.
