Mother Nature's Independence Day
Mother Nature had it's way with the BayBears on Independence Day and caused them to lose in a rain shortened game of only 5 innings. Last night's game was postponed due to the wet stuff and will be made up today as part of a DH. I was at the July 3 home game and boy what a crowd. Over 5,600 fans packed the stadium for a very very disappointing loss in 10 innings. On his final strike, former Bear Corey Smith laced out a single that eventually led to the Barons knotting up the score and winning it in the 10th. It was as big a meltdown as I had ever seen. It capped off a wacky series that included a would-be walk off HR for the BayBears that was contested and overturned. After this series in Mississippi, four BayBears will head to Montgomery for the Southern League All-Star Game which will be played on July 11. Feel free to comment, I know people read this, so your feedback (on anything really) is wanted and appreciated.
