Minor league baseball

I think I enjoy minor league baseball more then the the majors nowadays. The Rockland Boulders, our local team, aren't even associated with an MLB franchise. They're part of the Can-Am league, independent baseball. All the other teams in the league are from either New Jersey or Canada, which is convenient cause it makes it easy to view the other side as villains.



I'm a little embarrassed that I enjoyed the pre-game mini-wrestling as much as I did.



And of course the baseball

NO WAY!!!! Mini wrestling!!!! What a riot!!! Almost as fun as the time TJ and #14 went at it in the Cloudspin Lounge jousting.

My buddy Pro and I go once in a while to watch the Syracuse Cheifs play.

Minor league ball rocks.

We've had Jeter, Ricky Henderson and Nomar in our park.

I think the kids like it better because they can see. I like it because you don't need a heloc for a round of beerz.

NO DOUBT!

Biggest name that I've seen at NBT Stadium is Stephen Strasburg. Place was packed that night.

When I was a kid, I remember going to Albany/Colonie Yankees games and before that the Albany/Colonie As. One of the big name guys played one night on his way back from an injury (I think if was Mattingly) and so many people showed up they ran out of space and let the overflow crowd watch from the outfield track.

I'm a huge baseball fan.  The minors are a great family entertainment value.  I wish Plattsburgh had a team.

Anyone else remember Griffey Jr. and Barry Larkin playing for the VT Reds/Mariners?

No, I didn't realize those guys played in VT. Upon reflection I realize it was Ron Guidry who I saw in Albany, not Mattingly

According to Wikipedia Thurmon Munson started his career in the Cape Cod League, playing for the Chatham As. This a picture of his bobble head doll.
