Baseball is Coming

Arkansas vs Nebraska - Baum Stadium - Fayetteville, AR - 3/17/09

Well, ok, baseball is already here at least where college baseball is concerned.  As a matter of fact, Arkansas beat Alabama today with the help of Springdale native Thomas Hauskey.  Go Hogs!

Jose Duarte - NWA Naturals vs San Antonio Missions - Arvest Ballpark - Springdale, AR - 4/18/09

I’m actually thinking minor league, specifically Northwest Arkansas Naturals, baseball.  Season tickets are being mailed out this week!  The season starts Thursday, April 8!  On Friday, Centerfield by John Fogerty came on my iPod and I got excited.  It’s not a Friday night post-game fireworks show without that song being played.

Ben Tschepikow - Arkansas vs Nebraska - Baum Stadium - Fayetteville, AR - 3/17/09

Minor league camp is still in session so the opening day roster hasn’t been announced yet.  One bit of roster news from this past week is that Fayetteville native, former Hog, & recent Kansas City Royal draftee Ben Tschepikow (pictured above) has voluntarily retired from MLB because of injuries that have plagued him since the end of last season.  No Naturals uniform for Ben.:(

See you at Arvest Ballpark April 8!
