Behind door #2 on the calendar we find...the Huntsville Stars!
The upcoming season will be the Stars' 12th as a Brewer farm team, making them the longest tenured affiliate in the organization. In recent years, the Brewers have put some pretty good teams on the field in AA: The 2009 Stars were the first half champions in the Southern League North Division, went 73-67 in 2008 and also won the North Division in 2007, going 75-62.
They're also the only Brewer affiliate to promote an "unpredictable, diet Dew fueled, mildly inappropriate Huntsville Stars newsletter from the caffeine-riddled mind of GM Buck Rogers." I'll admit it - that description convinced me to sign up.
The Stars are getting excited for their 2010 season (which opens on the road on April 8, and at home for the first time on April 14), and they want you to be excited too. As such, they've volunteered to give away a baseball signed by members of their 2009 team to one lucky commenter on this post.
I haven't seen the ball yet, but here are some Brewer prospects who appeared for the Stars last season, and may be included:
So sign up in the comments for a chance to win this ball! Thanks to the Stars for making this possible.
(Also, if you haven't signed up yet, you still have 24 hours to sign up to win a WhatifSports gift certificate, so go do that too.)
