I t's been 56 years since New York had three teams, meaning anybody old enough to remember going to the Polo Grounds or Ebbets Field is old enough to have grandchildren. I doubt any current Mets or Yankees fans would care about a new team.

Nobody has mentioned Louisville, which lost a team when the National League contracted in 1899. IIRC. Louisville had the firstbminor league team to exceed 1,000,000.
