Hello and happy Wednesday.

It was recently revealed that the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, who had been the San Francisco Giants class-A affiliate since 1997, would no longer be a part of Minor League Baseball, due to the massive Minor League restructuring that gutted dozens of teams.

But thankfully there will still be baseball in Salem-Keizer, as the Volcanoes announced that they are joining Mavericks League, which will be a four-team independent baseball league.

More baseball is good. Baseball in Salem-Keizer is very good, as it’s a historic spot with a great fanbase and a gorgeous stadium.

It’s not the Giants anymore, but it’s still baseball. So road trip there in 2027 when the world is open up again.

How many days until Opening Day?

There are 64 days until Opening Day. Or so they tell me.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, all of you.
