2008 is the International League's 125th anniversary AND they are bringing back the IL Hall of Fame. Amongst this year's inductees will be Ben Mondor, Joe Morgan, and Jim Rice. I told you this already, but consider it a reminder. Strings around your fingers.
All this year's game balls will bear the 125th anniv. logo. GIT YOU SOME!
Sunday May 18th - Syracuse and Rochester, the two oldest teams in the IL, will play an exhibition game at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown. Special unannounced guest? Carlton Fisk.
In 1914, Babe Ruth played in the IL (Montreal). He pitched over thirty games but only homered once! The crazy thing is he tripled 10 times.
