Jared Reaves- Tigers Minor League Prospect

I got a great note from Jared Reaves talking about his career and the past season!

Jared let me know that this season started slow, but he feels that he managed to catch his stride and finish well.

He loved playing for the Whitecaps, and he let me know that the most impressive park in his league was Fort Wayne.

I asked him about missing home, and he said that he does miss the South when he is away, especially in April and May when it is warm.

He did grow up a Braves fan, but that changed when he was drafted by the Tigers organization.  He is proud to be with the Tigers, and he says that the people are caring and professional.

He does acknowledge that he still likes to see the Braves win...  unless they are playing the Tigers!

He ends his note with a "Roll Tide!"

Huntsville or Biloxi?

I hate to keep posting links to other articles....  but there have been some interesting ones lately!  And, to be honest, I got nothin' right now myself!

Check out this article by Mark McCarter concerning a possible move of the Huntsville Stars to Biloxi-


Have you been to a game at Joe Davis Stadium?  We were there a few years ago, and the place was dead.  I hate to put it that way, but......

Anyway, this is a very interesting article about the pros and the cons of a 2015 move for the team.  Check it out!

Indy Star article on 1917 Brewers Controversy

Forgive me for pointing out another article from the same source to posts in a row!

The Indy Star has become my go to site for news about one of my all time favorite towns, Indianapolis!

The Star does a fun job of covering sports and local news, and they also care about the area's past.

Check out this article involving a murder in 1917.  Baseball is not the focus, though the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers (then of the American Association) is!

Bush Stadium in Indianapolis

Here is a great article from the Indy Star about the old park in Indianapolis- it is now an apartment complex!  I tip my hat to the paper for such a cool article and to Indianapolis for doing this!!!
