I don't know much about minor league hockey, but I do know how amazing minor league baseball is. When I was a young tot, my town used to have a minor league team called the Spartanburg Phillies, but they bolted town in 1994 and ever since then it's been a fighting battle to try and restore one of the oldest baseball parks still standing in the country. The only good part about the Phillies leaving when they did was that since they were gone, the local high schools got to play in the stadium. And let me tell you, some of my fondest baseball memories are of roaming over that massive outfield in patrol of the ever illusive flyball. Such good times! So go get your and support your local teams, whatever the sport may be!
