2019 MiLB Rule Changes Unveiled (continuing story)

(from a continuing story I have been following across baseball, from MLB to MiLB to The Atlantic League of Professional Ball Players)
[additional story and link by Ball Park Digest Editors March 29 2019]

Baseball in its infinite wisdom, continues to incorporate rule changes. First to experiment are teams in The Atlantic League of Professional Ball Players.
Three batter minimum for pitchers (unless it is two outs, pitcher does not have to face two more the next inning), size of bases will go up to 18″, pitchers mound to be moved back two feet, no infield shift, limit of mound visits, possible rob umps to assist umpires. Many fans think this to be a joke. What next? Robo – players, robo umps, rob fans, robo venders?
The Commissioner, Rob Manfred, does not even seem to care and expressed that is why it is starting out in the Atlantic League, when asked by Michael Kay pertaining to pitchers possibly getting injured.
Not it appears that Minor League Baseball will be incorporating some or all of those experimental rule changes.
In a recent article by Ball Park Digest (a very good e-zine by the way), mentioned that thee will be a small twist to their experimental rule changes in each of the different levels in Double A and Triple A leagues. Unlike the Atlantic league, Minor league will make a revision to the Extra Inning Runner on Second Base rule, unlike the Atlantic League, which at this time remains as it is like previous seasons.

Flying Squirrels Hopeful on New Ballpark Talks

This is a follow up story to a feature from the Richmond Flying Squirrels Eastern League AA minor league team) and their seeking a new ball park. The link above provides further information.

A few years ago, the minor league team of the San Fransisco Giants, had been debating with the Greater Richmond area about new development of a new ball park for the Squirrels. Discussion has gone on for years. 

Now, the Squirrels are looking pretty much to replace the old stadium and start fresh.

You can read here. Please feel free to post comments on this.

Sports design.

Feeling a little creative, I was inspired by the All Star Game I am going to in Richmond Virginia during July 2019. I am actually very excited for two reasons to attend this event. I’ll be seeing my long time friend of 12 years and it will be my second All Star Game I have ever attended, in all my years of baseball. The first one was last year, when The Long Island Ducks hosted the event.

Anyone in the area of Richmond Virginia interested in the event from July 7 through July 10 2019 can visit the Richmond Flying Squirrels at

I e-mailed the Flying Squirrels to see if they want to use my art. I hope they will, even though they already had the All Star Game logo designed for that event. I was just trying a different perspective.

Poetry Set To Fine Art

While I was browsing through some works of art I had created over the years, I came across some images I created for a very good friend, who is a poet.

Many fond memories of works we created together and of our friendship. I thought I would share some memories with all of you. The poems and designs range from 2007 through 2015.

While Katies pen sits quiet since then, I wait with eyes open, while my creativity sleeps silently. Until then, enjoy.

Authors I enjoy.

Here are some links to authors I enjoy.  Lovecraft and Poe are similar, while Brautigan is a totally different genre of writing. There were many times I would spend an hour or two reading their works or listening to them on audio books, via the internet.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
