Nope can't happen

Ripken will not step in nor will MiLB.

I would suggest we wait.
There's a lot of talk out there that MLB (The majors) will expand by two teams possibly as early as next year. THE American League has 14 clubs and the National league 16 clubs and MLB wants to even this out.
Who's on the list to get a MLB team? How about Raleigh/Charlotte !! Those teams will need minor league ball clubs at ALL levels of play.
This would make Wilmington a very big PRIME city for a team. 110 miles from the parent club? I could see someone thinking AA level ball here.

But waiting is not on the pro sides horizon because they think like Wren does - "If it doesn't happen now it won't likely ever happen."

Arrogant but stupid
We've had 3 inquiries or attempts since 1993? I see that as once very 6 years or so.
