Strike up the band. Clear the streets. Get ready for a parade … maybe?
The Amarillo Sod Poodles completed their initial season in existence by winning the Texas League baseball championship.
Oh, I guess I should note they defeated the defending league champs, the Tulsa Drillers with an 8-3 victory on the Drillers’ home field.
This isn’t a bad way to bring AA affiliated baseball back to Amarillo. It’s not that losing to the Drillers would have been a total loser for the Sod Poodles and their diehard fan base.
However, a win is a win. A championship is a championship. The fans who flocked to their Hodgetown ballpark by the thousands every home game now have reason to cheer mightily for their hometown baseball club.
Will there be a victory parade in Amarillo? Beats the resin out of me.
There should be … but that’s just me.
Nice going, Sod Poodles.
