Yep, only the Kane County Cougars are affiliated (Royals A-level team) with a MLB team in Chicagoland.

The Joliet Jackhammers have had financial difficulty, owed hundreds of thousands in unpaid bills and have now been sold and re-named.

The Schaumburg Flyers owe more than $900,000 in unpaid rent, are facing eviction, and are expected to be sold.

I do wish the Sox would return to the Midwest League. It would be nice to go to a Cougars game to see Sox prospects when that team visits Kane Co.
