After 4 years of just shattering AA as well as ALL minor attendence records, they seriously increased the number of seats at Dell diamond and received a AAA team.
I'm sure if this was the case in SA, everyone would be using the increase in attendence as a reason for getting and deserving a pro-team.
I think that the support for the Express has a lot to do with the farming of a major league Texas team. The Missions would recieve more support if they were the minor for the Rangers.
