On top of the baseball side of things, it’s been a trying summer for all sports with the pandemic slowing and stopping them around the country. The summer season almost didn’t happen for the the entire league, but after they got the go-ahead, it’s been an incredible summer for all the teams in the league and the communities they are lucky enough to be in.
“We had some zoom meetings back in May and April and we were wondering if we could even have a season and we figured if we could play a complete season and get the season in that it would be considered a success. And, obviously, we had to fight some of the COVID stuff and we had some other issues and i think we could consider this a very rewarding season,” Bravos GM Paul Herl said.
