Opening Day 5 months away! No knitting content this time either!

I'm SO excited!!! (Yes, I am a Baltimore Oriole fan...but team #2 is The BoSox...because of Son#2, not to mention I have to have a winning team to cheer for) It'll be a lot of fun when the Frederick Keys come to town!

It was revealed yesterday...the new team logo.

Hubby went out to see the 2004 World Series Trophy yesterday.

The guards wouldn't let him touch it!

I love the new name Salem Red Sox

In my lifetime there's always been a MLB farm team in town, but it's had many different names & affiliates:
Salem Rebels (Pittsbrg Pirates)
Salem Pirates (Pittsburg Pirates)
Salem RedBirds (St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers)
Salem Buccaneers (again Pittsburg Pirates)
Salem Avalanche (Colorado Rockies)
Salem Avalanche (Houston Astros)
till present time!

We've had some pretty major stars play here too including Boston's Tim Wakefield (he was in the Pirates system back then)...oh, I could name others but I won't bore ya!

We already have our tickets for opening day! 5 months and counting....

Maybe I can knit some socks for the new upcoming season?!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

I may have to put a bag over my head, but I'll admit to being a Rangers fan. As a kid, I was a Dodgers fan, but watching the Rangers with my uncle kinda made me switch my loyalties. I don't watch much baseball, but I do try to keep up with the teams.

Thank you! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I kept trying to tell a lady I worked with that they were most recently affiliated with the Astros and she thought I'd flipped my lid!! (in fact she wouldn't believe they were affiliated with them at all...)

OH we really need to have a Stitch n Pitch there now where we knit SOCKS!! LMAO....

Did J get his pic with the trophy?? I heard they were doing that...

LOVE the new logo! Heck, I might have to come down for a game just because the logo is so cool...
