This is from an article from the daily herald...

there are two levels of territorial play here, (MLB and MiLb) not just one -- but it doesn't matter, because there's very little chance of affiliated ball landing in Joliet any time soon. For starters, no Low Class A Midwest League teams looking to move; can't have an affiliated team if none is available.

But, more importantly, the Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox or the Kane County Cougars (Low Class A: Midwest League) signing off on a Joliet affiliated team (and yes, they all have territorial claims here): the three have been pretty resolute in dissuading other cities from seeking an affiliated team, and we don't see that changing any time soon.
