Short season teams are usually in small towns.  Auburn, NY, Pulaski, Va so that would not be a problem.  I would assume that Charlottesville could support a high A franchise. Harrisonburg is not too far away also.

Plenty of people down here. City is only 45,000 but the metropolitan area is like 210,000 and that doesn't include Harrisonburg which is 40 minutes away. Plus, you're in a college town so people are going to support the local sports very well. If we regularly draw 3,000 non-students to women's basketball games, I'm sure we can support minor league baseball during a period where the big draws are already finished with their home seasons (no football or men's basketball).
