My Other Hat: A Plea for Minor League Baseball
As baseball season officially ended last night, I wanted to make a quick plea for Minor League Baseball. Being from the small state of Delaware, all of our sports teams hail from Pennsylvania, so you can only guess how excited I was when the Kansas City Royals chose Wilmington as a place for their farm team. I have fond memories of attending Blue Rock games as a teenager and I truly believe that attending a minor league game can gives one a glimpse
of what baseball used to be before it became the big corporate machine. With great prices, tons of fun, and terrific baseball; I beg each one of you to support your local minor league team next spring! You could have a future MLB star in your backyard and not even know it (like Johnny Damon).
