Back to the minors!

Recommended Posts

Finally made it down to Sevierville a couple of weeks ago for a Tennessee Smokies game.  They're the Cubs AA affliate.  

Great place to watch a game.  If they had been with the Cubs when they built the stadium, I would swear the modeled it after Wrigley.

Speaking of Wrigley, God help my wallet if I ever make it there.  The Clubhouse Shop at the park had a ton of Cubs stuff.   :-[

The game was good, the Smokies won and beer was only $3.  We had first row seats at first base, so we had a great view.  All for only $9 a pop.

Well worth the drive, I hope to head down there at least one more time before the season ends.  This was my second time watching a Cubs affliate play.  I saw the Huntington Cubs (short-season rookie) play the Kingsport Mets back in 93.

d**n I love the Cubs...

Did anyone see the Cubs Class-A affiliate Peoria Chiefs and Dayton Dragons, the Class-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds game??

MWL suffers black eye with Chiefs-Dragons fight

Two days after the nasty bench-clearing brawl at The Palace of Auburn Hills between the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks and the Detroit Shock, the Midwest League had a fight of its own in Dayton, Ohio, on Thursday that made what happened in Auburn Hills look mild in comparison.

Fifteen players and both managers from the Dayton Dragons, the Class-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, and the Peoria Chiefs, the Class-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, were ejected following a 10-minute melee.

Peoria pitcher Julio Castillo attempted to throw a ball into the Dayton dugout at the beginning of the fight, but missed it completely. The ball struck a male fan in stands, who had to be taken to the hospital.

Castillo, 20, was arrested and faced a felony assault charge Friday.
