Northern, United and Golden leagues to merge?

Ballpark Digest is reporting that the remaining teams in the Northern and United leagues are about to merge with the Golden Baseball League for the 2011 season. The new league is expected to fly under the banner of the Golden Baseball League.

It appears that the teams will play an abbreviated schedule in 2011 and that there will indeed be the four divisions mentioned in our previous blog post: Canada, Midwest, West Coast and Texas. It's still unclear which teams will make up the Canadian division, since none of the remaining teams in the Northern or United leagues are based in Canada. I can't imagine a two-team division with just Edmonton and Calgary...
