The End: Chattanooga Lookouts vs. Biloxi Shuckers

The End: Chattanooga Lookouts vs. Biloxi Shuckers
As a precursor to the baseball, Chattanooga is a very underrated city. The architecture was surprisingly sublime, to go along with the pleasant Tennessee river and a magnificent view from a nearby mountain. If you ever get the the chance, I recommend you visit. I even ate a burger with a biscuit bun, in between... Read more »

Observations: Tennessee Smokies vs. Mobile BayBears

Observations: Tennessee Smokies vs. Mobile BayBears
We were treated to a gorgeous drive through the Appalachians this afternoon, and I arrived at the Smokies Field just in time for batting practice. Unsurprisingly, Schwarber was hitting bombs on to the concourse in RF, with Vogelbach right behind him in the power department. I was able to interview Billy McKinney and Corey Black... Read more »

Winston-Salem Dash vs. Lynchburg Hillcats

Winston-Salem Dash vs. Lynchburg Hillcats
We arrived at the field pretty early and were able to catch BP for both teams, with videos of Clint Frazier and Bradley Zimmer coming in a few days. The Dash were nice enough to allow us to film on the field, making Frazier’s bat speed even more impressive. Unless you’re watching the video in... Read more »

Observations from the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers vs. Kane County Cougars Showdown on Saturday
You might have read the title and been a bit confused by seeing the Kane County Cougars listed there, especially since the South Bend Cubs replaced the Cougars as the Chicago Cubs Low-A affiliate.

After another early morning wake-up, we arrived at Myrtle Beach around 1:00 pm.

Day 5: Augusta Greenjackets vs Asheville Tourists
After hovering around Greenville for a few hours, we began our three hour trek to Augusta, Georgia. Whilst filling up with gas on the road, we were dumfounded on how to use an old gas pump.

The five hour drive down to Greenville was filled with magnificent views of the Smokey Mountains, it also made for a tumultuous two hours of 60 mph turns every minute.

Day 3: We finally got some much needed rest today and headed to Lexington in the afternoon. A brief storm blanketed our windshield along the way, as well as me blowing through the carwash dryer, but we reached Whitaker Field unscathed. Home of the Low-A Legends, Thirsty Thursday night at the park made the fans... Read more »
