We are lined up to go to a minor league game Friday night, if it's not rained out that is. Any fans of a minor league team on the old 'fire?

Yes, I go to the Augusta Green Jackets games frequently. They are a lot of fun.

Altoona Curve once in a while.
It's close, easy to get to, and cheap.
Not a sports fan at all, but I can stand to sit through
a ball game for my wife and kids. Would take a book,
But I have never been there, that someone didn't get hit by a ball
And have to be taken out.

OKC Dodgers are a good time. Beautiful park for minor leagues. I’ve had club level tickets given to me a couple times. A great feed before the game and food and drinks provided throughout.

Salem Red Sox....

Love it. More relaxed venue, cheap seats, kids can run around and talk to the players. Ball game tomorrow, what could be better on the 4th of July??

Hartford Yard-goats here. The field is new and has a big league feel to it.

Watching the Chattanooga Lookouts is a good cheap activity. Seems the minor league players hustle more than the pampered millionaires in the majors. Cheap seats for $5.

Used to go see the O Royals when they played at Rosenblatt. Haven't been out to see the Chasers at Werner, but hear it's nice.

I need to go sometime.

Colorado Springs SkySox was good for a long time, triple-A team for the Rockies. Didn't mind paying close to Majors price ($8 beers) to see them but they moved. A single-A team has taken their place for the Brewers now but kept the $8 beer prices. I don't go there any more. If I want to pay major league prices I just drive up to Denver and see the Rockies.

The Braves single A team stadium is 6 miles from the house. I go watch them a few times a year. Cheap entertainment and I should probably go more. I can eat there cheaper than at the local high school games.

Cedar Rapids Kernels are fun - nice ballpark, easy access, good baseball. They are the the low A team for the Minnesota Twins. They have been affiliated with a number of teams over the years, and a lot of good ballplayers have passed through - Mike Trout being perhaps the best of the bunch.

The OKC Dodgers have already been mentioned, but I started watching AAA minor league baseball in Oklahoma City with the OKC 89ers. Before the city built the beautiful and spacious downtown Mickey Mantel Chickasaw Bricktown Ball Park, the franchise played at the old fairgrounds All Sports stadium.

Major League Affiliations:

1962-1964: Houston Colt .45s
1965-1972: Houston Astros
1973-1975: Cleveland Indians
1976-1982: Philadelphia Phillies
1983-1998: Texas Rangers

Rebranded the "Red Hawks" in 1998, after a failed NHL bid by the city, resulted in millions of dollars of "RedHawk" branded memorabilia, which was converted to use by the baseball franchise owners.

Owners:

1962-????: Oklahoma City All Sports Association (Jim Roederer, et al.)
1971-1973: Phil Dixon
1974-1975: Bus Horton
1976-1978: Harry Valentine
1978-1989: Patty Cox Hampton & Bing Hampton, et al.
1990-1993: Jeffrey Loria, Marv Goldklang, Bobby Murcer, et al.
1993-1998: Ed Gaylord, Bill Mathis, Larry Mathis, et al.
American Association Champions: 1992 & 1996
Pacific Coast League Champions: 1963 & 1965

5sdad, and I were at the game Friday night. Good close game, the Kernels won down to their last strike bottom of the 9t. Two runs scored. the home crowd was happy, and they had a fireworks display after the game. Good time.

Iván Rodríguez, catcher
Sammy Sosa, outfielder
Carlos Pena, outfielder
Charlie Blackmon, outfielder
Nolan Arenado, third baseman
