Today, I was out to the final baseball game of the season for the Ottawa Rapidz of the Can-Am League. Unfortunately, the team lost their last game of the 2008 season, but there were over 5,000 people present, who thought it was just about the best game they had seen all season.
So, to celebrate all people who like baseball, I direct you to an article I wrote this summer for "Canadian Connections" on the GenealogyToday.com website called "Play Ball", and published in May, 2008. The link is <www.genealogytoday.com/roots/xweb.mv?xc=Display&xo=rescms&xn=-1&xr=1536&xw=&t_rid=25294&xz=connect.html>.
For those interested in stats, their win/loss record is 31-62, not bad for their first year. They replaced the Ottawa Lynx, a Triple-A team.
