9/4/10 Odds & Ends

Hey everyone, it’s Saturday, you know the drill. I’m really at a loss for good things to “fill out” this post this weekend, so I figure I’ll just throw up the two things I’ve got real quick and go to work on one of the real articles I’ve got ready to post up next week. Here we go:

- If all goes well, the Mat-Su Miners will have a new concession stand at Hermon Brothers Field next season. According to their website, the new foundation has been poured and will begin construction after the state fair (at the adjacent fairgrounds) ends. I personally don’t know what was wrong with the old one, it seemed as good as any I’d seen in the league. It also seems like the clubhouse/restrooms could use some work and possibly giving the umpires a better shed to dress in would be nice. But hey, as a person who loves food almost as much as I love baseball, I will not complain about any measures that will increase my face-stuffing pleasure.

- In other ballpark related news, for those of you who are sitting around in Fairbanks with nothing to do, why not head down to Growden for the Goldpanners’ park cleanup work/party? It starts at 10 AM Alaska time, and I’m sure they won’t mind if you show up a little late either.

That’s all for this weekend. Told you it would be short. Assuming your employer is not a fascist, you should have a three day weekend coming up, so be safe and eat lots of hot dogs. Come back Monday for our next scouting video and check back shortly thereafter as I preview the ABL alumni who will be going to the Arizona Fall League this year.
