Transience was actually used as a selling point for DC to get the Nats


The theory was, while the franchise was building a home grown fan base, that at least some fans of the visiting teams living in the area would buy tickets.

I don't know the Va. Beach area like you do, but my guess is if you put the first and only pro franchise down there, people will get behind it the way folks in Raleigh got behind the Hurricanes, Charlotte got behind the Hornets, etc.
