Back At It
The Burlington Bees are here in Clinton to start the second half tonight and all is well. A 45-25 1st half record is the best half-season record in franchise history. With that being said, if you follow Minor League Baseball you know the one constant is change. Today RHP Drew Tyson was added from SS-A Vermont and RHP Matthew Thomson was placed on the Disabled List retroactive to June 21.
Please find some random tidbits from the MWL All-Star Game and the start of the second half.
