cracker cats last night

went to another cats game and this one was a slugfest. edmonton won 16-9 over the joliet jackhammers and both teams had four errors. there were fireworks after the game to commemorate 100 years of baseball in edmonton. the first game was may 29 1907 with the edmonton legislators leading the calgary chinooks 8-7 when the game was called due to darkness in the 9th inning. so a free history lesson
