Welcome to the latest edition of the Indy Ball Weekly Perspective

  • The Sugar Land Skeeters and manager Gary Gaetti have come terms on a three-year contract extension, according to the Skeeters' website. Gaetti has been with the Skeeters since the beginning (2011). He took them to the playoffs for the first time last year on route to an Atlantic League record 95-win season. Gaetti has been part of the game for a long time, 20 years to be exact. During those 20 big league seasons, he hit 360 home runs, drove in 1,341 and was an integral part of the 1987 World Series champion Minnesota Twins. Even with all the history and all the places he's been, he's doing what he loves to and couldn't ask for a better community to do it in. "I’m doing exactly what I want to do and I’m so grateful to Opening Day Partners and the Skeeters organization for having me. I’ve lived in a lot of different cities throughout my career and I just love this community. I’m looking at what they call the best of the minor leagues. This is as good as it gets."
  • The Schaumburg Boomers banner year continues. After winning the 2013 Frontier League Championship, and being named Organization of the Year, has the Boomers as the eighth fastest growing team in professional baseball. Fastest growing considers account revenue, corporate sponsorship, and revenue from outside events. Since the Boomers replaced the now defunct Schaumburg Flyers, and took possession of a stadium that was left vacant for 18 months before they moved in, how could you not be ecstatic about the future. Boomers owner, Patrick Salvi, should be commended on the job he has done to revitalize baseball in the community. It's not as if Salvi is any stranger to success. He is also the owner of the Gary SouthShore RailCats, 2013 American Association Champions.
