The Boys of Summer are Back in Town!
Somehow I missed this in the March Madness. Am I the last one to know that Tucson has a new AAA baseball team? Mike Feder is back from New Orleans and he has managed to get the San Diego Padres AAA team, the Portland Beavers, to come to Tucson! Unfortunately, they will play at Kino Stadium instead of the much cooler Hi Corbett. But at least that big albatross will have some life in it and maybe Tucson can pay off the debt we were swindled into assuming when it was built.
More good news: they are going to hire local food providers, and will "sell things that people want, not just ballpark fare." And they will have monthly fireworks.
Opening day is April 15. Play ball!
