Minor League Moves - Pittsfield's Back

Here's my first non-CMC post. I was just working ahead and researching Wednesday's player when I had the occasion to check out the Web site for the independent Can-Am League.

The league currently has six teams, all in the Northeast, all within relative driving distance of us. We even stopped by the stadium for the Quebec Capitales in Quebec City last January on a trip to see the Winter Carnival. But we haven't gotten to a league game yet.

Anyway, I've been watching the team in Nashua, N.H., ever since they had stadium issues last summer, to see where they might end up. Looks like they're moving and even closer to Pittsfield, Mass. And they'll play in historic Wahconah Park, one of the last remaining parks with a wooden grandstand. The photo is courtesy Wikipedia. Our local team, the Tri-City Valley Cats, moved from Pittsfield in 2002. The Nashua team's move is pending final approval by the city, which is expected this month.
