The Fun And Excitement of Independent Baseball
I love indy league baseball. I was about 20 minutes away from the Bridgeport Bluefish growing, so I got to see with mine own eyes where the has-beens and ne’er-will-bes get together over their love of baseball. It’s weird, it’s strange, and sometimes there are only a dozen people in the stands, but it’s live baseball. However, too many nights with a dozen people in the stands and you get stories like this:
“The Worcester Tornadoes had an unwelcome delay of game tonight after a local company, armed with a court order, tried to collect on more than $4,000 in unpaid cleaning bills incurred by the independent baseball team.
Stephen S. Buchalter, president of Enterprise Cleaning Co. of Worcester, said lawyers for his company obtained a court order that enabled it to collect the game’s receipts and take possession of the team’s uniforms, bats, gloves and other equipment.”
Oof. Can’t imagine many fans wanted to stick around for that dispute.
