"The Sandlot" Anniversary Tour comes to Classic Park
The stories that touch the heart are the ones that come from the heart. “The Sandlot” is clearly a film about baseball set in the 1960s, but its inspiration derived from a real-life experience. David Mickey Evans directed and narrated “The Sandlot” 20 years ago and is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film with a tour of several ballparks, where the film is being shown. Included in this tour is Classic Park, home of the Lake County Captains. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently spoke with Evans to discuss the film.

Second Thoughts Game #92: Blue Jays 2, Indians 4
Two things dominated the pre-game commentary for this game. The first being the major league debut of Danny Salazar, and the second being the chance to grab a series win against Toronto as the All-Star break approaches. As it turns out, Salazar was sensational and the Indians came away with a much needed 4-2 win. The IBI's Michael Goodman shares his "second thoughts" on the game...

Another day, another rough outing for the Indians pitching staff. I had to look twice to make sure that the box score was correct when I saw that the Giants scored 10 runs in the top of the eighth. This is the fourth straight game where the Indians pitchers have allowed at least eight runs in a game.

Around The Farm: July 11, 2013
Early in the afternoon, former ATF darling and highly regarded prospect Danny Salazar led the big league club to victory. A success story like Salazar shows exactly why following these prospects is fun: you are getting a glimpse at the major league contributors of tomorrow. A few players were doing their best Salazar impersonations Thursday, including a first baseman at Columbus trying to jumpstart his season and an outfielder rehabbing in Arizona trying to get back. For all this and more, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Clippers clobber Mud Hens 10-3
An all-out offensive assault of seven extra-base hits lead the Clipper to a 10-3 beat down of the Toledo Mud Hens Thursday. Right-hander Carrasco (3-0, 3.29 ERA) was solid in his first start since being optioned from Cleveland on July 7. After pitching phenomenally through the first third of the game, a rough fourth inning knocked the starter of course a bit and forced him to exit the game early in the sixth inning.

Sailing with the Clippers: 7/4/13 to 7/10/13
Slowly but surely, the Clippers seem to be improving as of late, going 3-4 over the past week. The pitching seems to be coming around from both the starting rotation and the bullpen. The biggest problem lies with the offense whom was shutout three times over the previous 7 days and has dropped to last in the International League in team batting average at .247. Nevertheless, Columbus is making strides of improvement and are inching their way back to .500 (42-52).

Second Thoughts Game #91: Blue Jays 5, Indians 4
After yet another bullpen implosion, Cleveland found itself on the losing end of a winnable game. Poor pitching from the pen, some untimely bad defense, and some missed opportunities early and late in the game offensively cost Cleveland. Justin Masterson also struggled, though Terry Francona leaving him in too long hints at a larger problme. Join Michael Goodman as he gives his Second Thoughts on Wednesday's loss.

Around The Farm: July 10, 2013
There was no escaping the powerful storms that pushed through Northeast Ohio Wednesday night, as the Mudcats were delayed during their game in Virginia. The Mudcats were in the middle of an offensive outburst when the rains came down and, after the tarp was rolled back up, they continued assaulting the opposition. The Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain, Connecticut was also delayed, though there were fewer fireworks in that game. To read all about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.
