Welcome to the latest edition of the Indy Ball Weekly Perspective

  • It's unfortunate, but another independent team has ceased operations. The Loudon Hounds of the Atlantic League announced that they would forgo operations for the 2014 season. Interim Chairman and CEO Mark Stavish commented on the situation. “The Hounds are a tremendous brand and have a bright future. Unfortunately with delays in construction on the stadium and not wanting to begin in a temporary facility, we are unable to field a team for next season. We continue to make significant progress and The Hounds will keep our fans appraised of all developments. Our top goals are to build a stadium and have a plan to develop an organization that is strong financially for the long-haul. Ultimately, we want a team on the field that is highly competitive and one that all of Loudoun and our community can be proud to support.” Time will tell if this becomes a reality.
  • Brett Tomko is a 14-year MLB vet. He's won 100 games and has appeared in over 1,800 innings. Since last appearing for the Texas Rangers in 2011, Tomko has been a part of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Cincinnati Reds minor league teams. Upon being released by the Reds, Tomko joined the York Revolution of the Atlantic League with the hopes of getting back to the Bigs. In his first full season with the Revolution, Tomko went 4-8 with a 4.98 ERA with 90 strikeouts in 124 2/3 innings. At 41 a MLB comeback is unlikely, but Tomko signing a minor league deal with the purpose of assisting up and comers is a possibility. Bypass a comeback, and I could see a future in coaching. If will be his decision to make that choice.
