WOuld be pretty cool to have the double A farm team of the Jays, I'd expect them to draw big crowds just solely based on that affiliation. Imagine.....we are probably going to have professional baseball and the CFL back by 2014.
Brantford takes a 3-1 series lead... just under 6000 attended the game in Ottawa this aft. We may not win this series, but this season was definitely a win for baseball in Ottawa. With crowds like this, I think nobody can doubt that baseball is BACK!!
Was at the stadium earlier today. Fat Cats lost 7-1, but an overall entertaining game.. the London Majors really let the heckling get to them.
As for this season, Ottawa has a 14-16 record and are currently 6th in the standings. I personally see them staying in that position or even dropping one more to 7th since they have so many games in hand.
A bright spot in the lineup is pitcher Brandon Huffman. He leads the IBL in strikeouts with 93 of them in 11 appearances.. also 2nd in ERA with 2.07. All this and the kid's just 20 yrs old.
We were there Saturday night. Sad about the field, that Escapade music festival really did a number on the grass. Hopefully they will be able to get it back to its previous state before the playoffs.
I didn't see the game today but it sounded a lot worse. They played decently on Saturday but London was on their game defensively. I think the homer on Saturday was only the second that I've ever seen there.
