While Remembering Jackie Robinson, let’s not forget Larry Doby

With attention focused on Jackie Robinson this week, it would be inappropriate if we didn’t take a moment to also remember Larry Doby (December 13, 1923 – June 18, 2003). A native of Camden, South Carolina, he was the second black player to play in the modern major leagues and the first to do so in the American League.  Unlike Robinson, Doby also did it without spending one day in the minor leagues. A...

Ghost Stadiums – Cocoa Expo Sports Complex, Cocoa, Florida

Before I left for Afghanistan in mid-March, I drove across Florida from my home in Tampa to my parents’ home in Melbourne. Along the way, on Florida State Road 520, just outside of Cocoa, Florida, I saw the remains of what was once the home of the Florida State League’s Cocoa Astros, the spring home of the Houston Astros, and for a season, the spring home of the then-Florida Marlins.  Sadly, even at 55...

Ghost Stadiums – The Baker Bowl, Philadelphia

  When the Baker Bowl was first opened, it was praised as the finest baseball palace in America. By the time it was abandoned, it had been a joke. The little known first home of the Philadelphia Phillies (as well as the Philadelphia Eagles) opened in 1887. N. Broad St., W. Huntingdon St., N. 15th St. and W. Lehigh Avenue surrounded it.  It was rebuilt in 1895 and recognized as the first cantilevered design in...

Ghosts of a Bygone Era – Damaschke Field

Ten years ago, I was an intern at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.  It was easily the most awe-inspiring summer of my life.   One of the amazing opportunities I experienced was seeing several Oneonta Tigers games at .  Now, I know what you’re thinking.  Trish, is this a glorified high school field?  In some ways, it sadly is.  (That’s not even a shot at the Tigers.) Located an hour from...

Baseball Funny Side Up: The Best Blooper Video Ever

March 7, 2012

Many, many moons ago, I was a young baseball fan growing up on the not-so mean suburban streets of Melbourne, Florida. Times were different back then. It was a time when you had to memorize phone numbers and Cheers ruled nighttime television. But despite the chaos and tumultuous times, there was one video (on VHS, of course) that always helped me though the darkest of days. It's guiding light and steady beacon of humor...

Effa Goes Eh? – Newark Hits a Long Foul with their First Female Mascot

Why are mascots important to minor league baseball?  In the current economy, you would think a budget-friendly version of our national pastime could stand on its own.  Let’s face it though.  There’s a lot of competition for our entertainment time and dollars. With rosters full of “Who are you?” and “Didn’t you used to be?” there are more empty ballparks and folded franchises than we care to admit to. Mascots give your team brand...
