Two prominent cities with a massive connection to the sport of baseball — Louisville and Cooperstown — are without an MLB team. Home to the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, it seems a bit off that the bustling city doesn’t have a team to call its own. Under the leadership of manager Dan McDonnell, the Louisville Cardinals have become the city’s de facto pro team. The program has reached the College World Series five times since 2007 and has the support of one of the most passionate fan bases in the nation. Based off the support for the local college team, we can only imagine how beloved an MLB team would be.
