About Last Night: Elizabethton Twins, June 29, 2016

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my presumed return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. Last night I visited Elizabethton, Tennessee, the fifth stop on my 10-team Appy League road trip.

June 29: Joe O’Brien Field, home of the Elizabethton Twins (Rookie-level affiliate of the Minnesota Twins) 

Opponent: Pulaski Yankees, 7:00 p.m. start time
