Back In The PCL Days, Sonny, We Called Games On Horseback!
A fun Steve Harvey piece on the old PCL teams that used to be professional baseball in the LA area. What he fails to mention is that the Hollywood Stars eventually became the Salt Lake Bees, now the Angels AAA farm club.
Also, Vernon moved to San Francisco and became the Mission Reds and then moved back to L.A. and became the Hollywood Stars. There was an earlier Stars team that moved down to San Diego and became the Padres.
Since you like slice of life pieces, Rob, I thought you might like this piece on the youth baseball programs in the Dominican. It's the sort of leisurely feature piece that traditional newspapers can't afford to run anymore.
