Now this is a great bat race, to be sure. Excellent, even. But as a responsible journalist, it is my job to temper the breathless hyperbole of blinkered partisans in favor of a more fact-based historical approach.

Have San Antonio’s infield tumblers succeeded in their Mission to overtake Quad Cities’ crowd-endangering best bros? Or is the River Bandits’ claim of best EVER still valid?
America will be the judge.
