Our local minor league baseball team is called the Harlem Valley Renegades. When they arrived here there was a contest for the name and I submitted the Harlem Valley Dutchmen, which I guess was considered politically incorrect.

Anyway the town built a beautiful stadium over in Fishkill and although it is in deep financial trouble, I fully intend to support the team by attending a game this year, preferably on a hot summer afternoon.

Here is a minor league donnybrook or as Red Barber used to call it, a “real rhubarb.”
