  Author's Note:  I don't know how I missed this story.  Didn't put two and two together.  There was a tweet or some sort of note from an Immokalee game about a player being airlifted to a hospital but it didn't register to me.  But I saw someone tweet this article out today and I'm kicking myself for not following up.

  I received this in my email this morning and I assume it went to all recipients on the Florida Launch email list:   Dear Fans, I would like to update you on some meaningful developments in MLL. On Friday, March 22, our MLL team owners met in Boston to discuss the growth of our league. The meeting produced two important outcomes. First, the owners agreed to adopt a one team, one owner strategy. Second, effective immediately, MLL has reacquired all linear, digital and social media rights.
