As reported in the Sept. 24, 2008 issue of The New Perspective, the Waukesha Common Council approved a plan (on Aug. 20, 2008) allowing for a new baseball stadium to be built.
With a record of 10-21-1, the 2008 Pioneer baseball season was one that many fans and players would like to forget.
Well the summer is over and everyone is back in school for another long year of taking tests and doing projects. The end of summer also means the end of another long baseball season. For many in the Milwaukee area this means an end to another pitiful season for the Milwaukee Brewers.
If you haven’t gone out to a Carroll Baseball game this year, perhaps its time you should – that is if you like offense. The offensive numbers put up this season at Frame Park are almost hard to believe. Combine a very short fence (300 feet down the lines and 370 feet to dead center) and a powerful head wind that blows towards the fence, and you have yourself an equation for a home run derby – that, and a high scoring baseball game.
As I was watching the baseball playoffs this year, I was only interested in one league. This was the National League. I figured, why bother watching the American League Championship Series (ALCS) when the championshipbuying Yankees will the World Series without a challenge. Every year it’s the same thing.
When the baseball regular season ended almost two weeks ago, I took some time to look back over the past couple of seasons. I did not like what I saw. Over the past couple of years baseball has lost much of the charm it once had.
