Mark Lane, Baseball Fan

The season just started, and Flablog's Mark Lane has already been to one Daytona Cubs game and is planning on going to another (blog entry here). I missed the opener, but maybe we'll make it Tuesday night, too.

Aside: I'm not sure if it's fair to criticize Single-A play. You gets what you pays for.

Jackie Robinson Stadium, where the Cubs play, is, along with Bethune-Cookman College, part of Daytona Beach's special history in black/white race relations in the USA. It's a neat little ballpark -- and it's a ballpark, not a stadium, no matter what they call it -- and the fact that it has some legitimate history makes it even more fun. Warning: Aluminum bleachers; bring cushion.
