What a game.

I've never posted on an OSC basketball board before, but for this I felt I had to. Just happened, by pure luck of the remote, to catch a few early moments of the second half of the D-League Reno vs RGV on NBA TV just now, and for the first of those moments I could not quite process the score it was ...

Overkill

As we all know now, it was about hosting the 2013 AtL ASG. But the way they framed the announcement -- a "historical" announcement regarding "the future of the ballclub" -- you'd have thought they were switching leagues or changing ownerships or going to play football instead next year. Not an ASG. ...

Indeed

There is much insight and truth to what you say. I love the Atlantic League, what it represents, does and is. But I do not love the perception of overly centralized ownership, nor do I like the ways that centralization can manifest itself. Having more than half of an indy league owned by a single en...

No Ballpark In Winchester

Guess what? The Winchester City Council did infact put it to a vote yesterday, and – after hearing some extremely impassioned and often eloquent pleas to keep Jim Barnett Park the community gathering place it is, interspersed amid calls to maintain Bridgeforth Field and be loyal to the Royals of the...

Vote Delayed

Last night the City Counsil of Winchester held a hearing on the topic of the proposed $15M ballpark. A vote might have been held, but was not. I wasn't there but a colleague was, and he reports ~30 people spoke at the hearing and all but one were "extremely/adamantly against" (his words). Among the ...

Whither Winchester

God bless Winchester. That plucky little town wants so badly the legitimacy and esteem that comes with keeping a pro baseball team that it's willing to pay everything, give up anything and get nothing in return -- and they're okay with that. God bless 'em. Winchester is a great town, a historic town...

Big In Texas?

They say everything's larger in Texas. Well, 'spose that's true: the Atlantic League just got there and it'll never have been larger. With Fort Worth out of the AA (temporarily), the wonder occurs as to whether that market (with LaGrave Field) would be attractive as a companion franchise for Sugar L...

According to the highest of the high in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball speaking directly with the highest of the high with the Loudoun Hounds Professional Baseball Club yesterday (14 July), it is not factual that the Hounds are ruled out for 2012. It must be pointed out that this ballp...

Rumors of the Hounds' demise are greatly exaggerated. Speaking as a representative of the Loudoun Hounds Professional Baseball Club, we are still planning, preparing and proceeding to participate in the 2012 Atlantic League season, in coordination with the League. Exact details are still being final...
