Leo: Movin’ on up!
You are reading the fastest growing blog in the baseball universe. It was brought to my attention that we were the 46th most viewed MLB Pro Blog in October! In addition, there were only a handful of blogs covering a minor league team that had more viewers than this one. I’m curious to see how we stack up going forward… I feel like a movement is underway…
- There is a great new deal on tickets and Clippers championship swag! Get a Triple-A National Championship hat, a National Championship shirt, and two reserved tickets for only $40! (that’s a $60 value) This offer is available in-store ONLY at the Cargo Shop on December 3rd from 10AM-4PM.
- All single game tickets go on sale Thursday at 10AM!

- We are 128 days from the April 5th “Opening Night” against the Louisville Bats.
- Speaking of Louisville, David Bell has been named the new manager of the Bats. He replaces Rick Sweet, the all-time winningest skipper in Bats history. He’ll now transition to the role of Reds minor league catching coordinator. Bell was previously the Reds Double-A manager with the Carolina Mudcats.
- Former Clippers/Indians pitcher and renowned funny man Jensen Lewis has signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He’ll be reunited with former Clippers pitching coach Charlie Nagy.
- The Indians are scheduled to announce the organization’s minor league “Players of the Year” on Wednesday.
- Happy Birthday to broadcasting legend Vin Scully. The unmistakable voice of the Dodgers is 84.
- The minor league umpires have agreed to a new contract. This may not seem like a big deal, but I remember the 2006 season when the umps were on strike. We saw such madness as Razor Shines (the Charlotte’s manager) ripping up his lineup card and Torey Lovullo (Buffalo’s skipper at that time) dropping a rule book at the feet of a replacement umpire. Oh, the memories…
- There has been a lot of chatter this week about Urban Meyer accepting the football coaching job at Ohio State, but very little talk about Urban Meyer the baseball player. Did you know Meyer, a 13th round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in 1982, played two seasons of pro ball? He was a .182 hitting shortstop, so not nearly as impressive as his football coaching resume.
I’ll have more later in the week!
