Games 24, 25, and 26: Lancaster Barnstormers first half Division Champs!

Wow! What a weekend! The Barnstormers went into the weekend 4 game series with the rival York Revolution with a 1 game lead and needed to split the series to win the first half. They won the first 2, so the last 2 didn't matter and some guys got to get rested up before the all star break. It was a great weekend for autographs too! York may be our rival, but the team is full of nice guys that were great about signing autographs, chatting with us, and even playing catch on the field with us. We got there at 3:00 Sunday (for 6:00 game) to do our next kid reporters taping. A few snags in the schedule with the all star break here didn't allow it to happen, but we did get to checkout the video and sound room and listen to all the sound effects with Tom Richards. We also went down to play catch and Ricardo Gomez started throwing with us. He is a pitcher with York that played for the Barnstormers for 2 seasons. All in all a great weekend...especially knowing that we'll have playoff baseball in Lancaster for the first time in 5 years!
