    MANCHESTER, NH - The Fisher Cats need New Hampshire's vote! The team is currently leading Minor League Baseball's "Food Fight," a competition that ranks the best ballpark menu items in the country.
    "The Squealer" is topping the charts, but the Fisher Cats can't hold the lead without the help of the best fans in baseball. Fans are encouraged to vote and check out the full MiLB Menu at milb.com/foodfight.
    New Hampshire's unique sandwich includes a handmade pig roll, bacon, ham, Italian sausage, pepperoni, pulled pork, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce.

    The rebranding of the Staten Island Yankees has not been just announced. I posted about it in the 2016 Yankees thread back on June 21...

    http://forums.bigsoccer.com/threads/2016-new-york-yankees.2029062/page-3#post-34202815

    And a further update shows it's not happening right now...

    Considering the names being looked at were mostly stupid -- Pizza Rats, Killer Bees, Heroes, Rock Pigeons, Bridge Trolls -- it's just as well the idea has been put on ice.

    In April, an unprecedented criminal trial will kick off in federal court in New York, with two representatives of the town of Ramapo facing multiple counts of securities fraud. Prosecutors have frequently indicted public officials for embezzling taxpayer money or taking bribes, but this case marks the first attempt to convict officials for fabricating a town’s financial statement in order to raise money in the bond market—in this instance, to pay for a new minor-league baseball stadium. Ramapo town supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence and Ramapo Local Development Corporation executive director N. Aaron Troodler “kicked truth and transparency to the curb,” alleges the indictment, by lying to investors about the town’s crumbling finances. Among the maneuvers the pair employed, prosecutors say, was to shift around assets in city accounts and to exaggerate the size of payments the town had received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for cleanup after Superstorm Sandy.

    not a bad ROI:

    Mets purchased the Syracuse Chiefs from Community Baseball Club of Central New York Inc for $18 million. That would lead to a return of roughly $1,400 per share–after certain expenses and obligations are paid off. The club has about 1,700 shareholders representing a total of 11,000 shares. Many of the original shares sold for $10 each.
