    Highland franchise moving

    After a single season Back Home Again in Indiana, the Highland Trojans will be moving for the upcoming 2091 season to a still to-be-determined location.

    The franchise originated in Highland in 1981 and spent six seasons there before moving to Sumner, WA for four seasons. From 1991-2085 the team called Seattle home and won the only three WS titles in team history -- 2001 and 2043 when they were known as the Boy Toys, and most recently in 2072 as the Seattle Hawks. The team then spent 2086-2089 in the Ozarks before coming full circle back to Highland.

    Team management expects to announce final details before the flip to the new season.

    Now that the World Series is over (congratulations to Apostle Island) the franchise formerly known as the Highland Trojans is squealing with delight at its new name and location......the Pigtown Engineers.

    The community was first settled in the 1840's by railroad workers, and got its name before the turn of the century when cargo railcars from the Midwest would swing their doors open to unload their oinking cargo, sending them running through the streets of the neighborhood enroute to the local butchers.

    Once the flip occurs to the new season, the field will be rededicated in honor of a native son who went on to baseball glory.

    At the ceremony to announce the name for the field where the newly-christened Pigtown Engineers would be playing their home games, team management opened up by stating that the area's German heritage would be reflected in the concession stand offerings, which would include bratwurst, knockwurst, weisswurst, liverwurst and pretty much any other kind of wurst you can think of (as long as it's the best wurst). Also, sauerbraten and dumplings, plus potato pancakes. Of course, there will be steins of frosty beverages, along with root beer and birch beer for the designated drivers and the younger fans in the Junior Oinkers Engineer Club.

    Finally getting around to the business at hand, a large banner was unveiled revealing the ballpark name.......

    Kaline Field at Carroll Park

    The field is named in honor of area native and Baseball Hall of Famer Al Kaline, who went straight from high school to the big leagues and grew up playing sandlot ball (among other places) on the fields of Carroll Park. (Article by author David Stinson including a photo.)

    I remember watching Kaline on TV. He was an excellent player.
