NOTES FROM DOWN ON THE FARM…
- We have heard of games being cancelled for lots of reasons. There was even a game once at the Astrodome that was rained out (nobody could get to the game because of flooding). But this the first time we ever heard of a game being postponed because the tea flight was cancelled, as the Bulls were last night. Since when do minor leaguers fly? Vince Naimoli would have never let that happen.
- Evan Longoria was named the Southern League player of the month for May. In 28 games he hist .317 with 7 home runs and 25 RBI.
- Chris Mason was named Southern League pitcher of the week for the second time.
