          Folks, before beginning a new ballpark thread, please check the Forum Index first to see if one already exists. As well, when beginning a new ballpark thread, contacting me privately will allow me to not only make sure others don't exist, but it will also afford me the ability to format the thread to properly fit the forum if necessary. Thanks much.
          Put it in the books.

            Sorry about that... I used the "search" option but it didn't yield any results...

              No worries. Our weak Search engine is the reason the Forum Index exists in the first place. Everyone wishes the engine were of an adequate strength, but it doesn't seem to be the highest priority on the webmaster's bucket list. My guess is it's not an easy fix, so we may have to wait for the site's next "Version" before the search works as well as we all wish it would.

                      I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.
