Ballpark frank

Attended my first Lookouts game since before the pandemic last night.

It was a glorious night.

And no, this is not about minor league baseball. In fact, it's never been about minor league baseball. I can't name a current Lookouts player other than the select superstars that have come through town during my two decades and easily more than 200 Lookouts games over that time.

But the future of the Lookouts here is not about the game or the players, at least those on the field.

There certainly feels like there is something brewing just under the surface with the Lookouts' wants for a new stadium funded with a large upfront stake from city, county and state dollars.
