About Last Night: Danville Braves, July 3, 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 Danville, Virginia, the ninth stop on my 10-team Appy League road trip.

July 3: Legion Field, home of the Danville Braves (Rookie-level affiliate of the Atlanta Braves)
