Jones the Steamed

Baseball

Don't know if its been done but wondering if there was any interest in American rounders and if any of you've got a team you follow.

I'm a Mets fan.

Went to a World Series game between SG Giants and Anaheim for my baptism and loved the game and spectacle.

Didn't really fall for the Giants and ended up checking on the Mets due to their poor neighbour status with the Yankees.

Go Mets.
Late Doors

Every time I have been to the States I try to watch the local team and every time I say to mesen, “right this lot are going to be my team from now on” My first game was San Fran Giants V Oakland A’s in the big local Derby. A young Jose Canseco was bowling if I remember correctly who later became even more famous for jousting Madonna. Anyway over the years ive had some great days out at Wrigleyville so it’s the Cubs for me although I don’t actually follow them as such

For some reason I support all the Seattle teams. Probably 'cos they're crap.

A timely reminder, Mr Jones. This will be the third year of the forum's interest in baseball. During our first season, we witnessed the demise of our initial interest, the mighty American Defenders, mid-way through the season due to financial difficulties (which culminated in a creditor parking a tractor on the pitcher's mound to prevent further play).

Last year the forum's team of choice was the Great Lakes Loons, a single A side, which is as about as low as you can go in professional baseball - the refuge for the rookie with borderline talent, through to the great talent with a greater coke habit.

It was the Loons' winningest season in their history and was followed with gusto here in exquisite detail until they choked at the semi-final stage, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in a way only the England football team knows how.

See in particular the final pages of http://regdafishthinktank.com/about6533.html

Last year the team was managed by Juan Bustabad and coached by Chuck Crim, which added to their appeal. But Bustabad and Crim have moved on to pastures new, replaced with people with normal names.

So I throw this question open to our forum members - who is to be Reg's obscure face of baseball 2011?

Do we stick with the chokers - or do we fancy something different?

Obviously, as previously, the standard of play is of minor interest. We're looking for obscure towns and places, players and coaching staff with bizarre names. The best and most unhealthy food promotional deals.

We need to find somewhere you'd happily go on a sultry summer's Friday evening to have a belly full of beer, food, laughs with your mates... the sport is purely secondary; league level is immaterial.

You can find a directory of leagues and teams here:

Tampa Bay Rays, been to see 'em several times, they've been punching above their weight the last two seasons, competing with the Yankees and Red Sox and beating them. They lost their star player Carl Crawford recently to the Red Sox.
