Speaking of, have y’all heard of the Ballantyne Smokies? I didn’t know about collegiate summer baseball.

I also noticed they talked about being a host family. Cool idea.

Yep, incoming Niner Ryan Butler plays for them. We had a few there last summer as well. Hoping to catch one of their games to see Butler pitch.

$1 16 oz Peebers!? I’d be all over that if I was in town.

Chris Hinnau is bench coach for the Smokies. There is also the Vipers. Three 9ers play for them and Ross Steedley and Aaron Bray are listed as coaches for them.

These teams are in the Southern Collegiate Baseball League.

…Sorry to digress.
