About Last Night: Greeneville Astros, June 25th, 2016

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my presumed return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. Last night I visited Greeneville, Tennessee, the first stop on my 10-team Appy League road trip. 

June 25: Pioneer Park, home of the Greeneville Astros (Rookie-level affiliate of the Houston Astros).

Opponent: Johnson City Cardinals, 6:00 p.m. start time
