  1. August 29, 1987 - Watched Dale Murphy hit a home run at Busch Memorial Stadium January 31, 1993 - Dallas Cowboys win Super Bowl XXVII October 28, 1995 - Atlanta Braves win the World Series March 10, 1996 - Iowa State Cyclones win the last Big Eight Conference Men's Basketball Tournament June 25, 1999 - San Antonio Spurs win NBA Championship
  2. The independent American Association, Atlantic League and Frontier League, along with the rookie Pioneer League are now independent MLB Partner Leagues which will, according to MLB, "collaborate with MLB on initiatives to provide organized baseball to communities throughout the United States and Canada". The short season Appalachian League will now be "summer college wood-bat league specifically designed for rising freshman and sophomores, operated with the support of MLB and USA Baseball." The new MLB Draft league, with four New York-Penn Lg. teams plus the Trenton Thunder & Frederick Keys, will also be a summer college wood-bat league, but "focused on top prospects who are eligible to be drafted by MLB Clubs." All other independent and summer college leagues are on their own.
  3. It now looks like Lake County will stay in the MWL, while Bowling Green goes to the South Division of the Mid Atlantic League (from @jjcoop36 at Baseball America) North Aberdeen IronBirds Brooklyn Cyclones Hudson Valley Renegades Jersey Shore Blue Claws Wilmington Blue Rock South Asheville Tourists Bowling Green Hot Rods Greensboro Grasshoppers Greenville Drive Hickory Crawdads Rome Braves Winston Salem Dash
  4. That's 11, you forgot the Harrisburg Senators
  5. I still haven't heard who the odd man out is at AA. Supposedly Jacksonville is moving up to AAA, while San Antonio and Wichita are moving down to AA. If that's true, then one team from the Southern or Texas Leagues will have to go. Or they could add a team (New Orleans?), and drop two Eastern League teams (Bowie?, Richmond?).
  6. I live in San Antonio. There has been absolutely no progress on a new stadium. The building sites they have been looking at are now too expensive, already taken, or didn't really work in the first place. And good luck trying to fund it in this city. Moving back to AA is probably for the best.
  7. Rocky Mt. and Grand Junction are actually the farthest away from the nearest NWL team, both over 600 miles. I don't think any of the PL teams are really a good fit in the NWL.
  8. I think a 5/5 PCL is pretty obvious: PCL West: Las Vegas, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake, Tacoma PCL East: Albuquerque, El Paso, Oklahoma, Round Rock, Sugar Land with a 7/7/6 IL: IL West: Columbus, Indianapolis, Iowa, Louisville, Omaha, St. Paul, Toledo IL South: Charlotte, Durham, Gwinnett, Jacksonville, Memphis, Norfolk, Nashville/Richmond IL North: Buffalo, Lehigh Valley, Rochester, Scranton/WB, Syracuse, Worcester
  9. I know, I was saying they could switch to a west coast affiliate (Arz, SF or LAA)
  10. Ditto the Angels with Rocket City, D-backs with Jackson, and Mariners with West Virginia (A). San Antonio and Wichita are rumored to be moving to the Texas League, so that would take care of 2 of the AA teams. I guess Northwest Arkansas would be a 3rd, with KC switching to an EL or SL team. The Giants, Rockies and Mariners all have another low A team.

  12. The Chaparrals only played 3 games in Denton that year. I wouldn't consider that their home.
  13. Baltimore got the Bullets in the 40s, 10 years before the Orioles ABL 1944-47 BAA 1947-49 NBA 1949-54
  14. Interesting, but I would switch Atlanta & Pittsburgh, keeping Braves & Marlins together
  15. I'm guessing there aren't many Braves/Spurs/Cowboys/Cyclones fans: Dallas Cowboys - The first team I remember rooting for as a kid in San Antonio in the late '70s, bigger fan during Aikman/Smith/Irvin era. Atlanta Braves - Started watching in '82 on TBS while living in Iowa. Dale Murphy is my favorite player in any sport. San Antonio Spurs - Hometown team, but didn't follow basketball until the Spurs drafted David Robinson. Iowa State Cyclones - I attended ISU at the same time as Fred Hoiberg and Troy Davis. Secondary Favorites: Houston Astros/Texas Rangers (Nolan Ryan fan), Houston Oilers (Warren Moon), Iowa Hawkeyes (Dad's favorite) Don't like: Mets/Phillies/Yankees, Lakers, Redskins/Eagles/Giants, Kansas/Nebraska
