Re: Can a AA Team Ever Win The Majors
We had lost to Spectrum the previous weekend down in Garland, Tx. We were allowed to pick up 3 extra players for the World Series. We picked up Doug to play right and bat 7th behind Howie. Of our roster we had Doug from Minnesota and Bruce Woods from Michigan. All 14 of the rest of the roster were from Ohio. The week of the World Series we played the Columbus city championship. All 10 starters in the city championship were at Daytona and all contributed. Doug hit home runs in his first 2 at bats. It really seemed to ignite the team. Birdy was great the whole tournament. In the late 80’s and 90’s Bunca, Spectrum, Dan Smith and several other teams made runs at the Major. Only other to win was Greg Powers team, either 2001 or 2002?
