Great blog!! I love minor league baseball as well, and it’s great to see the Portland Seadogs have the logo of the month. I have a Sea Dogs sweatshirt.
There is a certain beauty to minor league baseball that is very different from Major League baseball. And it’s absolutely beautiful.
Thanks, Elizabeth. I think the Minors is a great brand of baseball and the players are a lot more down to earth. I’m thinking of transfering over to the Maine area, so the Sea Dogs may just be my home team someday. I also want to take an east coast trip seeing teams in Portland-Manchester-Lowell-Boston-Pawtucket. That would be a fun trip. Take care.
That logo I have to say looks funny, but at the same time entertaining!
