I had to drive over to Michigan for work yeesterday- decided to stop and have lunch while taking in a few innings of a South Bend Silver Hawks game. Normally I might have stopped at the Cell- but between the team and the way they are running things- it would just be frustrating.

I can honestly say that they have a better scoreboard set up than the White Sox- their main scoreboard is in full view from anywhere in the park with no obstructed views- with a clean 9 inning score view + current batter stats & full line up the team batting. Then there is a 2nd small scoreboard with current score, outs/balls/strikes and current pitcher info directly behind home plate.

On a side note- a nice minor league ballpark- pretty good food options and tons of stuff for kids to do and they've integrated some older buildings into the ballpark "campus".

"When I heard the National Anthem it hit me," Jose Abreu said through White Sox spokesperson Lou Hernandez. "I love the Anthem. When I learn English Iím going to sing it."
