Friday's Muckdog's game drew record crowd
Nice little tidbit buried at the bottom of the Buffalo News story on Jeff Weaver signing with the Bisons.
The Muckdog's game drew a record crowd: 3,021.
We were there handing out water bottle kozies -- we gave out 1,000 of them prior to the game. They were a big hit with people who arrived before we did coming from the stands to ask for their own once they saw they were available.
We also handed out about 750 at the Ramble yesterday. Again, big hit.
It was fun to meet so many people who already visit The Batavian regularly, and we made several new friends, I think.
But back to the Muckdogs, please be sure to check out Eric Manning's post on the Muckdog's hot prospects. I stumbled about Eric's blog Future Redbirds the other day and asked if he would be willing to fill us in on who the top players are on the Muckdogs. If you're a St. Louis Cardinals fan (and there seemed to be several of them at the game on Friday), Future Redbirds seems like a must-read web site.
And while we're talking about Muckdogs coverage, the Muckdog's intern Molly Radzinski, a broadcasting major from Albion, has been doing a great job of providing us game recaps. Here's one.
I couldn't stay for the whole game Friday because I promised my wife I wouldn't be gone long, but I need to get back to Dwyer Stadium soon -- it's a great ballpark. There isn't a bad seat in the house, near as I can tell, and the fans are really into the game.
I need to go to a game soon, and so should you.
