Mail- June 23- July 20

Sorry for the long wait. I have been busy since my vacation, and I am still working on the posts on the Barons and Biscuits. Now I am back, and I am ready to update everyone.

On July 3, I hopped on a plane to Birmingham, Alabama, to visit my grandparents. I didn’t get to post anything about the mail from the last week of June, and while I was gone, I got some mail (my mom was at home writing the dates on the envelopes for me). Here is everything I got, starting with June 24:

Tides 6-24

The Norfolk Tides sent me four 2013 pocket schedules.

Sent: June 19, 2013

Received: June 24, 2013- 5 Days

Mud Hens 6-24

Mud Hens 6-24 (2)

The Toledo Mud Hens sent 2 pocket schedules, an issue of Muddy Times, a 2013 Magnetic Schedule (which, somehow, I didn’t photograph), and stats/pictures on some printer-paper.

Keys 6-24

The Frederick Keys sent me the first Carolina League fan pack I have ever received, and inside was two pocket schedules.

On June 28th, I received a envelope from the Hickory Crawdads. I thought it was great to get this because, last year, the Crawdads said I needed to send a SASE.

Back in early June, I made the trip to Tampa, FL, and got to see a game inside the ugly Tropicana Field. We drove through Lakeland, FL, to get to Tampa. The Detroit Tigers Spring Training facility resides there, and their A-Advanced team, the Flying Tigers, play there. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to visit Joker Merchant Stadium, but the Flying Tigers did send me these pocket schedules:

F Tigers 6-29

They also sent some fan club information, but I didn’t photograph it.

Threshers 7-1
