It's Baseball Time

 I've decided if I were rich I'd travel from town to town to watch minor league baseball which are techncally more fun than major league because the parks are smaller & the fans more fun.  I do love major league but I don't get to Arlington very often to see my Rangers play & Bally Southwest, those greedy bastards, only let Direct TV subscribers see the games anymore.  I hate them.

In my research, I found some that are Summer Collegiate Leagues & not quite minor league or affiliated with major league clubs.  I'm adding them because I love baseball & boys--no matter what age--that want to play as long as they can. 

But I digress.

Here are some of the names.  I'm not a t shirt person but I'd need something from each team.

1. Lubbock Crickets  Our team from 1995-1999.  They didn't fly...not sure why.  Enjoyed every game.  Named after Buddy Holly's band.
