Here is a test for how loyal and dedicated the Amarillo Sod Poodles’ fan base has become.
The Sod Poodles will be training in Arizona this spring alongside their parent National League club, the San Diego Padres. For what it’s worth the Padres will compete in the Cactus League against other teams that are getting themselves into playing shape for the 2020 Major League season.
The Sod Poodles already have demonstrated that their fan base loves the team. I mean, they packed Hodgetown game after game during the Soddies’ initial season in the Texas League. They cheered the Sod Poodles on to a league championship.
I am going to presume that the dedicated fans will trek out west to cheer for the team as it preps for the upcoming Class AA season.
While living in Beaumont, I became friends with a dedicated Houston Astros’ fan who every spring would travel to Florida to cheer the ‘Stros on as they prepared for the next season of hardball. He wasn’t alone.
I look forward to hearing how the Soddies’ fans respond to Season No. 2 of their team’s quest to retain the league championship.
