June 18, 2015 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

 by Jim Brown
 
Here we go….new leagues began last night and across the Nation on Friday evening there will be numerous small ballparks holding Opening Day ceremonies. Just a short jaunt from my home-base, the St Louis Cardinals Short-Season team in the New-York Penn League (State College Spikes) will open play and hoist the NYPL Championship Banner. Its officially Summer, but more importantly its the start of the full UTR schedule.
