Columbus baseball news

Columbus Alive

God, I love writing those words! The fever inspired by the best sport in the universe (I'm assuming) will overtake this city with some cool upcoming events...

Major League Baseball comes to town

The MLB will hit Cooper Stadium this Thursday, March 29, with an exhibition game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals, the Columbus Clippers' parent team.

This should be awesome. Game starts at 4:05 p.m., and tickets start at $10.

More baseball inside!

Town Street Tribe Backers

It's clear that the American League Central Division is the most difficult in all of professional sports. Don't let East coasters try to convince you otherwise (NY vs. Boston - ha!).

That means the Tribe needs all the help it can get, even though the lineup is solid and the starting rotation will be once Cliff Lee returns from an abdominal muscle injury.

How can you do your part? Well, starting on Opening Day, which happens at Jacob's Field next Friday, I will give you many opportunities to show your support.

As president of the Town Street tribe Backers, it is my duty to hold down the local Tribe fandom. More details will follow.

For now, get up to speed here.

Columbus Clippers season begins

The Clippers begin their arduos trek towards a penant Thursday, April 5, at the Indianapolis Indians. They will start an eight-game homestand on Thursday, April 12. Chris DeVille is doing our coverage that week, which should be awesome.

Remember: It's now perfectly fine to like the Clippers, since they are no longer affiliated with the New York Y--kess.
