Being a HUGE baseball fan, this is a bit of a shock, but last night, I watched my first game of the 2013 season, the Winnipeg Goldeyes home opener against the Laredo Lemurs. I know, it was 5/27 and baseball started back in February. I am just having a problem getting into baseball this year since the Yankees picked up Kevin Youkilis, ruining baseball for me in 2013.Very good game with Winnipeg winning their hope opener to improve to 9 – 2 (Laredo dropping to 10 – 1 on the season).
Up to this point, I watched half a Nationals-Pirates game and one half inning of a Yankees-Baltimore game (Youkilis is on the DL, so I was spared watching him tarnish the uniform). Though I am a Yankees fan for life (with the exception of any games with Youkilis signed), I do love independent baseball. Just something about it. I’m sure some of it is because I was an independent wrestler at one point, so I understand the struggle.
For those with Shawn Direct, 20 of the 50 Winnipeg Goldeye’s home games will be televised, so here is the schedule. I can’t wait for 6/14 since the Capitales de Quebec are one of my favorite teams, and this would be the American Association champions versus the Can-Am league champions.
