Mobile BayBears Moving to Madison, AL in 2020

The Mobile BayBears will be moving to Madison, AL (in the Huntsville metro area) for the 2020 season.  This move was expected with the recent ownership change.  Mobile has the oldest stadium in the league, but since it is only about 20 years old, I wouldn’t think it is past its expected lifespan.

Jerad Eickhoff and Nick Williams Philadelphia Phillies Signing – January 17, 2018

On Wednesday, January 17, the Philadelphia Phillies had their annual player autograph session.  For the past few years, in the middle of January, the Phillies have had a player or two signing at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park.  I expected a higher turnout than what I saw, but I think the Wednesday 5:00 signing isn’t a great time for many people.  Overall, it was a good event though and I’m glad that the Phillies at least do this one event each year.
