On Friday night I visited Spokane, Washington, the final stop on my sprawling 10-team California-Nevada-Idaho-Washington road trip. After a not-so-brief travel and sleep delay, I now provide the following brief recap. There will be far more to come on the blog regarding this trip, as well as my previous Appalachian League excursion.
August 12: Spokane Indians (Class A Short-Season affiliate of the Texas Rangers)
Opponent: Eugene Emeralds, 6:30 p.m.
Avista Stadium, from the outside:
At Random: The Indians are long-time partners of the Spokane Indian tribe; signage throughout the ballpark is in the tribe’s native Salish language.
