Visiting A Little Hole in the Wall

salem logo.gifLike a letter without a stamp, this blog has suffered from insufficient postage this week. The reason for this is because I’ve been in Mobile, AL, in order to cover the opening of the Hank Aaron Childhood Home and Museum. Check out my reports, complete with Flipcam video, HERE.

But Minor League Baseball news never rests, not for a moment. So blog I must.

And I must start in Virginia, as a most unfortunate occurrence has befallen the Salem Red Sox: on Sunday morning, an out-of-control driver slammed through the box office. The timing could not have been much worse, as the club’s home opener is on Friday.

Here’s a look at the damage, courtesy of media relations director Dave Cawley:

The Sox have joked on their Facebook page that this is the “First Ever Drive Thru Ticket Office.” Cawley reports that most of the ticket computers and printers were destroyed, and that the team might have to sell cash-only General Admission tickets on Opening Day. But, on the bright side, no one was injured. The only side effect is some terrible b.o.

And regardless what tragedy may befall us, life goes on. And, sometimes, life can throw some pretty awesome things our way. Like this:

The Lexington Legends new t-shirt Gatling Gun, seen here in front of the team’s brand-new left and main field videoboards, can shoot 24 t-shirts in 10 seconds. Never forget that we are living in amazing times. Truly amazing times.
