Why did the Omaha Royals change their name?
I feel like I read this exact story in Kahn's "Good Enough to Dream" about the Utica Blue Sox.
This is a hard story to keep straight. So many names -- I feel like I'm reading the Hobbit or that one book in the bible with the genealogy.
Scanlan then hit Marlon Byrd in the shoulder in the bottom of the frame. Umpires and coaches held Byrd back as other players headed onto the field, including Myers.
Myers yelled and pointed toward Scanlon, who was ejected and standing next to Henson on the mound.
"When he hit Marlon, he (ticked) me off," Myers said. "Marlon's one of my good buddies, and everyone on this team has been good to me. When one of my buddies get hit, we're going to play beanball war."
Myers made good on his promise when Henson came to the plate with two out the next inning.
"Henson was standing there looking at me and saying stuff," Myers told the Delaware News Journal. "So I told him, 'You're next, buddy, you're next.' So right when I threw at him I knew he was coming out."
You know what that makes them? Lollygaggers.
Would you want to be associated with the Royals?
What is a "recent tradition"?
Omaha manager Mike Jirschele, who was coaching third base at the time, yelled back at Webber. Webber came out of the dugout to talk to his pitcher Alexis Lara, who was in the middle of being roughed up.
Each time the Storm Chasers scored a run, players in their dugout jumped on empty cups, creating a loud popping noise.
I'm reading A Storm of Swords now, and I have the same complaint about all of Martin's books so far. Intriguing storyline, but enough of the irrelevant names that we don't care about and will never hear from again already.
Oh you'll hear from them again. Once all the main characters die he has to bring in the new ones from somewhere.
Correct. I could see it happening in college, even. But professional baseball? Yuck.
After season 2 on HBO I tried to go back and re-read the series but I couldn't get passed the first 100 pages. Those first 100 pages or so are simply dreadful.
The first 100 pages of Silmarillion can be a slog the first time through. Like Game of Thrones, worth the effort for me, at least.
It's good to know Lara's 25. Were that not included, my reaction would surely have been "But how old is Lara, dammit?!"
