Akron's Week That Was: 5/10 - 5/16
It was a wet week for the Aeros as they saw two games get washed out due to rain. It forced the club to play two doubleheaders, one against Reading and one against Erie. The Aeros managed to split against Erie, but they dropped the doubleheader to Reading as a part of their series loss. There is some excitement though in Akron as Kelvin De La Cruz made his debut and he did not disappoint.

Infirmary Report & Goodbye To Lewis
Okay, it's been an interesting last few days for me to say the least. Since returning from Myrtle Beach I have been basically bedridden with some kind of ridiculously powerful flu-cold concoction. With that I was unable to make it to Akron on Saturday night to see them, and also the second part of Minor Happenings is not complete.
What I did want to post from that second part of Minor Happenings...

Up until this week, the Kinston Indians had been performing their best version of the infamous Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck cartoon, "Duck Season/Rabbit Season." In this version of the Looney Tunes production, the Indians were busy shouting "Bullpen/Starters/Offense" from week-to-week, never quite figuring out how to put it all together. This week, the baby Indians found a way to get Bugs and Daffy to work...

Things Starting To Click For Greenwell
If a baseball player were to sit down in the offseason and diagram exactly how he would like to start his next season, that player would draw up the hot start Low-A Lake County outfielder Bo Greenwell got off to this season.
Greenwell had an amazing month of April where in 21 games he hit a blistering .405 (32-for-79) with 22 runs scored, 7 doubles, 2 triples, 3 home runs, 23 RBI, 7 stolen...

Evelyn "Mama" Kornegay passed away Friday morning at her home from pancreatic cancer.
Over the years, Mama provided home and care for over 150 Kinston Indian players over the past 15 years, most notably Victor Martinez when he was in Kinston in 2001. She provided a loving home and adored all of her "boys" as she would often call them.
"It is impossible to measure the impact Mama had...
