Southern Maryland Fits

Please permit me to enlighten those who seem to think that life ends at the Mason-Dixon Line. The move into Charles County, Maryland, in the sprawling suburbs of Washington, D.C., is a permanent one for the Atlantic League. They are building a stadium -- something not usually done if the location wi...

The Bums

I found myself in the northern Lower Peninsula and got a look at the Traverse City Beach Bums' new place. It's one of the more interesting ballparks I've seen. For one thing, it's color is an odd sort of...well, I really don't know what word to apply to the color. It's a shade very appropriate for t...

What will happen with the New Jersey Cardinals, then? Particularly, is that fairly new ballpark sitting amid cornfields in Augusta going to be tenantless?

I like the logo too. I'm glad that the team will retain its affiliation with the Nats. Just gives me another excuse to make my way up there for a game.

Okay, so it's a collegiate summer squad. Very well then. I follow the Valley League and the Griffith League quite a bit. Technically, such is beyond the purview of OSC.

Rest assured, NLFan (a.k.a. Bill): Long-winded posts, if not full of vitriol, are indeed read by those of us who have managed to escape the modern sound-bite-length attention span.

Congrats

Congratulations on Gary's earning of the Northern League Championship. There are several articles in Northwest Indiana fishwraps about the RailCats being disrespected in the post-season awards, and in the lack of butts in seats.

I heard about these proposed changes in the minor league structure too, but not to the level of specificity as you, Pounder. I haven't run the numbers but I wonder if a merge of the Pioneer into the same level as the NY-Penn and Northwest would create 30 total teams at that level. If this comes to p...

Try swinging a 32-ounce stick at a hard ball traveling toward you at speeds up to 90 mph, which just might change its trajectory without much prior notification. Then try it again.
