IRONPIGS ARE BORN
The LeHigh Valley Baseball Franchise that will take over for Ottawa in 2008 announced yesterday that they will be called the LeHigh Valley IronPigs. Plans call for a new stadium to be built in Allentown, PA with a stadium ready for the start of the 2008 season. The Philadelphia Phillies will be the major league affiliate and own a portion of the club.
AGNEW TO COACH BLUE JACKETS
Word out of Columbus is that former Syracuse Crunch Head Coach Gary Agnew will be named the new Coach of the Blue Jackets. Gary was a class guy for over seven years he spent in Syracuse and we wish him luck.
