Gee, I wish THIS post was 26 pages long. I will look you up when I come up. Beer aside, it would be great if we could arrange to do a game together, like the old board did for the big club a few years ago.

If you haven't done a minor league game, it is a totally different and refreshing experience.

Well, I got a partner at home in Dan Zangrilli. He will be joining me on a selected number of road games as well. April can't come fast enough..

Sounds good curveradio, nothing like nachos and talking baseball.

For what its worth, I love the Baysox stadium, its a quaint place to watch baseball.

I'd be up for a get together at Blair County Ballpark with the members who are close by or willing to make the trek...

I'd be up for a post-game get together as soon as I get my stuff done for the night (You'd be surprised how much after-game stuff broadcasters do).

hey curve,

Looks like I will be seeing you in Bowie, May 19,20,21.

I can't wait to get a good look at Tabata, if he is still there.

Rumor has it he is supposed to start the year in Altoona..along with Negrych, Moskos, Lincoln and Lerud. Hopefully we get a Pedro Alvarez sighting by June.

Last year when I went it seemed that all the players were a little too old for AA. I did get to see Shelby Ford, I think it was the game he finally came back from injury. Oh yah, I was able to get a good look at Meek, and he was pitching pretty well.

I saw him pitch with Montgomery in 2007 when he was in the Rays organization..he wasn't bad..gave up more than a hit per inning, but he only allowed a pair of homers and had 69 k's in 67 innings of work. He threw hard too

Curveradio,
What station is carrying the games this season? I thought I read somewhere that it is no longer 93.5

We hitched our wagon to the ESPN affiliate in town..1430 WVAM. We are also going to be heard on four or five other stations in Western/Central PA. I think we are one of only a handful of minor league teams that has a radio network.

I can hear the games on the web, too, right?

Curveradio,

You and your broadcast partner need to see about doing a game from on top of the rollercoaster out in RF...
