Want a pro baseball team?

I'd love to support a local team (I live in and work for the City of Charlotte) but this is 100% Braves country and given that they are title contenders.... that's a tough market to crack.

I think it can be done as long as it's an AL team and not an NL team.

Raleigh area has more people now than Charlotte area.  Raleigh only has one pro team.  I think Raleigh should get the pro baseball team to balance out between Charlotte and Raleigh.

The Charlotte metro area still has nearly 500,000 more people in it than the Raleigh metro. Raleigh area is growing faster though and will likely catch up in another decade or so.

For first time, Wake County tops Mecklenburg County in estimated NC population

North Carolina has a new population leader.

Mecklenburg County is no longer the state’s most populous county, new U.S. Census Bureau estimates show.

After years of creeping up on Mecklenburg, Wake County, which includes Raleigh, finally overtook it — 1.13 million to 1.12 million.

The change came after Wake grew by 1.75% from 2019-20 and Mecklenburg grew by 1.41%, according to annual population estimates released Tuesday. The census bureau has yet to release an official population count, which will be detailed in the 2020 Census.

Not the full picture though. Wake county is 800 sq miles in size. Meck is 500.
