Article in the PG this morning about Butler fielding a team in a midwest collegiate baseball league. Those leagues have some great baseball and are played in some cool parks. Cape Cod and Alaska are the most prominent but the NYCBL is a longtime league and there are others around the country. Area fans should check it out.

Will the games be at Pullman Park?

Nice. That's a great place to watch baseball. Supposedly, Babe Ruth played an exhibition game there once. Same with Point Stadium in Johnstown.

AZ, I knew you spent some time in my old stompin' grounds, but I couldn't tell if you meant Butler, PA or not in your post. That's great! That area should have minor league baseball. Problem with me is, I now live an hour further away, near Edinboro and the snow belt.

While at the Rock in the mid 70's we used to go to an establishment on Sunday nights for a few pops. I believe it was called the Lindora Hotel. Would that be correct? It was also the nearest state store. College priorities, you know.

I've sipped some pop there too. Cool little joint. I don't know if it's still open or not. It's been a few years since I've been to Butler.

Sunday nights they were open because they served food.

Yes, the Lyndora Hotel, or the "Tiltin' Hilton," as it was called when I lived in Butler, is still open. I think it was called that because it sat on that steep hill. Anyway, they served great wings before wings were a big thing.
