yeah, that name's terrible. I wonder if the league is getting close to some west coast expansion(i.e. Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento, etc.). Glad to see the league growing.

Yeah, I would like to see a California team. Hopefully the league will be successful enough to expand to the west coast. As for the name it looks like they were named after the field their playing at, Scrap Yard Sports Complex. Might have been part of the deal to let them play there. But yeah, still really bad.

NPF likely to add two teams for 2017 season.

Meanwhile, the league is growing. The Dallas Charge joined prior to the 2015 season. The Scrap Yard Dawgs in The Woodlands, Tex., a Houston suburb, will make their debut in 2016, joining the Charge, the Akron Racers, Chicago Bandits, Pennsylvania Rebellion (Pittsburgh) and USSSA Florida Pride (Kissimmee/Orlando). At the Winter Meetings, the development of at least two new teams for 2017 will be discussed. In addition, the NPF will determine the location for the 2016 NPF Championship Series, to be followed by an official announcement.


There's really a ton of options for NPF expansion. Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Southern California, the Bay Area, Portland, Seattle, New England, New Jersey(again). Nice to see the league finally doing well & looking to grow.

I'd say doubtful to expand to Alabama. With two in Texas now, I'd expect the next round to be further west, SoCal, Bay Area and the Northwest. The Northeast should be a target as well.

Just as a reminder, in an odd quirk of fate, the draft is on April 14. Yes, the same day as the WNBA Draft. Mock draft from Justin's World is below.

I wonder where they're looking to expand for 2017? I wouldn't mind a team back in NJ.

League back down to 5 teams as Pennsylvania folds. I wonder if we'll ever see this league at 8 teams.
