        I like the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Class A California League
        affiliate of the Angels. I guess that makes old Jack Benny's line appropros: "Train for Palm Springs is now boarding (former home of the Palm Springs Angels and the former spring home of the Angels) via 'Anaheim, Azusa, and Cucamonga.'"

        That would be a funny way to get to PS, and Anaheim would actually be out of the way. Former MLB player Hank Aguirre was from Azusa for those that remember him on the Tigers and others.

            Die hard JACSONVILLE SUNS fan here! The team is awesome, some of the players I've seen go through... oh, the memories! We've sent several (6 or 7, it happened so fast it's hard to keep track!) players out to Vegas and LA this season already and I expect a few more will leave us soon! Besides the stadium is aboslutely INCREDIBLE!!! It's so nice the owners started holding the "Throwdown Thursdays" (buck beers at a ballpark) when the team ISN'T in town, and it's STILL full! Beer, aside, the park has the red-brick facade, a deep (420 ft.) center field and is just a stunning place to watch my favorite boys play! We tok the first half of our division, so now... GO SUNS!!!!!
            P.S. OF Jon Weber is THE man!!!!

              My favorite team is the Lancaster Barnstormers, since they are the only minor league team I've ever seen.

                Although I have never seen a minor league team play, my favorite is the Montgomery Biscuits. Just because of their nickname, their uniform and their awesome cap.

                  Arkansas Travelers.
                  A team name that is appropriate and rolls off the tongue.
                  Although reading about the racist stuff Sleepy Allen went through there made me pretty mad.

                    Reminds me of the Asheville Tourists.

                    BTW, Hellborn? That's a scary handle to carry around, don't you think?

                      Just a play on Mark Bellhorn's surname...I especially like it because he seems to be a quiet, unemotional character, not a hellion. I think that the contrast is amusing.
                      Like Bellhorn, I am pretty quiet, maybe more emotional, and I liked to strike out a lot when I played baseball. I was just lacking the walks, power, and defensive ability. At least, I hope that Mark still has some power, because I'd like to see him stick around and help out the Bosox some more.
                      And I strike out a little less now that I only play slow pitch. ;^)

                          Mud Hens!

                          I've become a Toledo Mud Hens fan. Although I'm not a Toledo native, I became a fan after taking a job in town. They are vastly more entertaining than my beloved Royals (and they're actually making a pennant run this year!).

                            Personally, I like the Chico Outlaws of the independent Golden Baseball League. I live in Chico, CA and since I've lived here most of my life (10 yrs., 7 mos. out of 21 years), I consider this my hometown.

                              They say you never forget your first love, and for me that was the Arkansas Travelers. I saw many games at Ray Winder Field as a kid, from about 1971 through 1982 or so, when I started college. Even bought a share of Travs stock for $5 back when they were still selling them at games.

                              At Ray Winder, I saw Al Hrabosky, Bob Forsch, Keith Hernandez, Garry Templeton, Larry Herndon, Bake McBride, Tito Landrum, Ken Oberkfell, Tommy Herr, Andy Van Slyke -- a whole generation of Cardinal farm hands passed through LR during that time. Obviously, I also undoubtedly saw many others playing for the Travs' Texas League opponents during those years -- most have slipped my mind or made no impression at the time. I did see Denny McClain's 1973 appearance at Ray Winder with the Shreveport Captains during one of his comeback attempts -- he lasted less than an inning, and gave up five or six runs. Pretty sad.

                              Only went to a couple of games during my college years. Then I moved to Atlanta. Once the internet came around it got a lot easier to keep up with them from here. I've been back for a couple of games in the last few years. Still a great ballpark, and the fan experience is wonderful, thanks to GM Bill Valentine's efforts.

                              My second favorite is the Asheville Tourists. My wife's family is from Asheville, so we visit there often, and I catch a game at McCormick Field whenever it's feasible. Doesn't have the personal history for me that Ray Winder does, but it's close -- we had a group outing to the ballpark for a game in lieu of a rehearsal dinner the night before we got married, and my dad got to throw the ceremonial first pitch. It's a beautiful place to see a game -- so said Babe Ruth and Branch Rickey, and so say I as well. GM Ron McKee is also one of the best in the business and has made it a great place for fans of any age.

                              I loved Engel Stadium, and I think AutoZone Park in Memphis is a terrific place to see a game, but I've never felt any sort of emotional, fan-type connection with the Lookouts or Redbirds.

                                I would have to say the Staten Island Yankees. Its only 10 min from my house and very good seats are only $11. Its the team that Chein-Ming Wang played for and I hear there SS and SP have great promise.
