NEGRO LEAGUE LEGEND NIGHT AT ALEXIAN FIELD
The Flyers turn back the clock

The Schaumburg Flyers and the U.S. Army are excited to announce a historic Negro League match-up at Alexian Field on Friday, July 25, 2008. When the Kansas City T-Bones come into town, they will be transformed into the legendary Kansas City Monarchs and the Schaumburg Flyers will wear the uniforms of the equally famous, Chicago American Giants. These two Negro League powerhouses will renew their rivalry for one more magical night this summer, which promises to be one of the more anticipated baseball events in the Chicagoland area in 2008.
In addition, the first 2,500 fans who arrive at Alexian Field on the Negro League Legend Night will receive a U.S. Army scratch card and have an opportunity to win one of the 100 commemorative Minnie Minoso statues produced by Hartland. The iconic Minoso will be on hand for the game to throw out the first pitch and will be signing a few of the winning statues.

Hmmm, I wonder if the ageless Cuban Comet still plays third base?

Fly him out to Detroit, Jerry. :wink:
