|Mgm finally on happy side|
Just as the day before, the Barons took an early lead of the type that would have been a deathblow to Skitz teams past - but not this batch of buttery boys. They fight back and the fans in the stands love it.
This team has got to get its starting pitching to go deeper into games, but its looking like a fun summer for Montgomery baseball fans!
BIG MO's PIG
Personally, I like the pig. The pig is the future, shes the face of the organization. I say we keep the pig and that gives us enough mascot depth to deal Big Mo. That would open up more playing time for Monty the Biscuit, who is sometimes disrespected by the team.
Besides, if the pig brings a team like we saw this week we might want two pigs!
ALL THAT HISTORY!
APRIL 6 1898
Montgomery hosts Auburn (known as alabama polytech at the time) in an exhibition game.
This is one of the oldest game reports I have found on Montgomery baseball, I'm not even sure what park/where this game took place. I dont usually post news reports this long, but I know there is at least one Auburn fan out there so the rest of you will have to just scroll on down!

The Cincinnati Reds face the Boston RedSox in exhibition DoubleHeader!
The Reds win game two 7-5 at Cramton Bowl. The second game consisting of the reserves for both teams, the starting squads playing in game one.
The 1946 Red Sox are World Series bound, though of course they will be turned away by the Cardinals.
