In these tough economic times it's not unusual for businesses to close.
The Atlantic League is no exception.
After Friday's stunning announcement that the Newark Bears will cease operations, the Atlantic League and the city of Newark will have to make some tough decisions.
Right now, there are no Newark Bears. Owner Marc Berson it was time to shut the doors rather than lose money next season. Newark is one of the weaker teams in the Atlantic League in terms of attendance, averaging 2,764 a game in 2008, the second lowest on the circuit. It may not get better next year in the current economic climate.
Yet that doesn't mean Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium will be dark next season.
