As of press time in early May, it looked like the NLL will be expanding into the outdoor lacrosse business to complement its winter indoor league.
At least, that is if you believe NLL Commissioner Jim Jennings.
Of course, there already is a professional outdoor lacrosse league (Major League Lacrosse), which is owned by Jake Steinfeld and his partners. So far, MLL and NLL officials havenâ€™t commented much publicly about the proposed NLL outdoor league. The MLL is taking a wait-and-see approach, while the NLL hasnâ€™t officially said anything about an outdoor version.
All that Jennings has said publicly was a recent statement that addressed Gary Gaitâ€™s announcement that he isnâ€™t playing in MLL this summer so he can help the NLL move forward with â€œthe exploration of developing an NLL outdoor league.â€
