Generally, the week after Labor Day is one of the saddest of the entire year. I’m always sad when the Minor League Baseball season ends. Sure, some of our guys might get called up for the end of the season. But it’s just not the same without them playing in down the street and in other towns and cities across the U.S.
This year, however, is different. Both the Frederick Keys and the Bowie Baysox, the Baltimore Orioles single A and double A affiliates, are in the playoffs. Game one for both teams is tonight – and they’re both playing at home.
Two years ago, the Bowie Baysox were the Eastern League champions. We’re hoping to take home the trophy again!
Good luck to both the Keys and the Baysox!
