Well  I am leaving Nashville for a job near Wilmington. I have lived in the Music City since I left the Army over seven years ago and this is going to be my first real move with the family. I am not going to lie I am a bit nervous. But what really sucks is no more AAA baseball (actually I am going to miss the music more but this is a baseball blog). I just googled and figured out I have the KC affiliate A ball! Anyway are there any other BNers out there?

What you lose in AAA ball and music, you will gain in beaches and barbecue.

I really like Wilmington, for whatever that's worth. Very cool town, and obviously great if you love easy access to the beach.

You'll like A ball.  So long as you don't expect to see polished baseball, it's a great time.

 

I was at a Peoria game once and had some idiot behind me complaining how about how bad that baseball was, how awful the players were, how terrible the front office for both teams had to be to sign those players when they could have signed various other names instead, etc.

 

By my count that guy was watching one of the best teams in A ball at the time, about half a dozen players who were in the majors within three years, another handful who made it for at least a cup of coffee eventually, and even one or two guys are on the fringe of All-Star status.

 

Don't be that guy.  Just enjoy it.

Congrats on the new job and hope the move goes smoothly. As for minor league baseball A-ball is excellent. Incredibly affordable, players really love to interact with fans, and some of the best minor league promotions.

Glad I could run you out of town before I even get there.

Phil, I've got a comfy spot for a sleeping bag ready for you in my greenhouse just as soon as you're willing to make the trip.

I have heard there are too many pants crammed in that greenhouse. ;)
