Andreopolous Recalls Crazy Fight: Remember Alex Andreopolous? Of course you do. So really, you don’t need me to point out that he was a catcher on the Aberdeen Arsenal during their glorious flop of a season in 2000, right?

Anyway, Slam Sports (from Canada!) has an interesting story about his role in a famous fight between the Canadian and Mexican squads during the 1991 Pan-Am Games.

The current Blue Jays bullpen catcher shares his side of the story, so it’s worth a read… – MA

Speaking of the Arsenal,anyone read the book about the season by Neal Conan. It’s called Play by Play and is a diary of that 200 Arsenal season. Pretty easy read and interesting look at the A.L.

I purchased a copy of "Play by Play" off of Ebay last year. I agree it's an interesting read. A lot of people in the book are still involved with the AL (i.e. Gladstone, Krenchiki & Foucault to name a few).

I haven’t heard anything new about Elder. I’m assuming he’s still on the Patriots’ radar. I was told it would take a few weeks before he could join the club.

Ex-Bears Manager Chris Jones fired by CWS as Manager of Kannapolis Intimidators…..

Capra Takes Over As Intimidators Manager

Date: 7/29/2008

Kannapolis, NC – The manger who piloted the Intimidators to the 2005 South Atlantic League Championship is back as the skipper in Kannapolis. Nick Capra takes over the reigns for the final five weeks of the season.

Capra managed the Intimidators in 2005 in his only season in Kannapolis. The 13 year veteran in the White Sox organization has also managed in Bristol, Birmingham and Charlotte during his tenure. Capra spent 2006 and 2007 as the White Sox hitting coordinator. He was named the Assistant Director of Minor League Instruction prior to the 2008 season. He still holds that post but has taken over as the manager in Kannapolis for the rest of the season.

Capra replaces Chris Jones as the club’s manager. Jones was relieved of his managerial duties by the White Sox Monday prior to the team’s doubleheader in Lakewood.

Capra played in 45 Major League games from 1982 to 1991 with the Rangers and Royals.

The Intimidators are in the midst of an eight-game roadtrip. Kannapolis opens a four-game set in Delmarva starting tonight. Coverage starts tonight at intimidatorsbaseball.com with Dan Bumpus at 6:50pm for a 7:05pm first pitch. Kannapolis is back home August 2nd against Hagerstown to begin an eight-game homestand. For tickets call 704-932-FANS or go online to intimidatorsbaseball.com.
