The Holyoke Giants are moving to Lynn.
They come here with a new GM most of us will remember.....Robin Wallace.
That's right,the GM of the 07 Can-Am League champion Nashua Pride is retunring to Lynn to help another baseball franchise in the city. I met with her and Phillip Rosenfield yesterday at LynnCAM to talk about broadcasting the games lives,like we did last year with the Spirit. Needless to say,he was happy to know we were interested and gladly said that we could. As to how many games,seeing as there are only 21 home games as opposed to (what?) 46,we don't know.
Like I said,I met with Mr Rosenfield--and I will say this: He seems like a very kind,good man who really wants this team to survive and be really involved with the community.
There's still one problem with this team that should be at least discussed.....a team name. At the moment,Phil said the name choices are down to the Nor'Easters, the Wave OR the Tidal Wave. BUT--fan input is always good. So,what do you guys have for name ideas?
And--I know some of us don't or won't like him,but what about a mascot?
Any other input would be valued =]
