FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks are leaving the Northern League.

The American Association of Independent Professional Baseball Clubs says it has accepted the RedHawks, the Gary SouthShore RailCats, Kansas City T-Bones and Winnipeg Goldeyes.

Commissioner Miles Wolff says the addition of the four long-standing teams will make the American Association "a very strong 14-team league." Northern League Commissioner Clark Griffith tells The Forum he's disappointed.

The American Association will have three divisions. Fargo-Moorhead will play in a division with St. Paul, Minn.; Sioux Falls, S.D., and Winnipeg. St. Paul and Sioux Falls left the Northern League for the upstart American Association after the 2005 season.

Fargo-Moorhead has been a Northern League member since 1996.
