"We allow some of the most talented baseball players in the world to play in empty stadiums night, after night, after night. Let’s do something to change that."
The City of Dunedin has a problem. The city of Tampa has a problem. The cities of Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, have a problem. Pinellas County, Hillsborough County and counties across and the state of Florida have a problem so grave and, yet, so easy to fix it ought to be addressed here and now.

The Palm Beach Cardinals pounded out 16 hits en route to a 10-9 victory over the Dunedin Blue Jays on Thursday (June 2). Palm Beach has the worst team batting average in the Florida State League, but you would not have known that on Thursday evening. Jays starter Deck McGuire struggled through five innings, giving up five runs on eight hits. Three D-Jays relievers proceeded to give up another eight hits and five runs. Toronto Blue Jay Adam Lind looked like anything but a player rehabbing. He doubled twice, singled and stole two bases. Lind has been the designated hitter the past two evenings, however, he is expected to play first base Friday before heading back to Toronto. Cardinals pitchers struck out 13 D-Jays batters, including third …
