The Envelope, Please

The quest to determine the top Minor League promotion certainly was an arduous process. A series of blog posts led to a field of 32 semi-finalists which, in turn, led to the selection of four finalists.

The Rickwood Classic!

Read all about it in my MiLB.com piece, which can be found HERE. And, as you may recall, I was actually in attendance at this game. In addition to the article linked in the preceding paragraph, blog posts on Rickwood can be found HERE and HERE.

Looking back on it, it appears that my coverage of the event turned out pretty well. It is very rare that I ever feel this way about my own writing, but why fight it? Riding this wave of self-confidence, I’ll re-attempt a joke that totally bombed when I tweeted it this morning.

Chili in Minors is today’s number one news story! Click HERE for exclusive info.

Why doesn’t anyone else think this is funny? I’m drowning in virtual flop sweat. And when that’s the case, time to resort to the tried and true: New Logos.

The Delmarva Shorebirds will be hosting the 2011 South Atlantic League All-Star Game, and today they revealed the logo.

This bird, his bearing upright and exclamations stentorian, was designed by Plan B Branding (who, by the way, maintain an excellent blog). As the logo implies, the game is sponsored by Perdue’s “Strike Out Hunger” campaign. More info can be found HERE.

Finally, in honor of Wednesday the 13th, a scary video courtesy of the Bowie Baysox.

The above video was rated “horror.”
