California League’s 66ers get an overhaul

Truth. What I liked about the previous set was their simple colors of red, white and blue and their logo. But this one is just so different, I don’t know if it works out well enough for me to like. I better stock up on the old 66ers gear before they’re gone.

The Logo Asylum

This one hits close to home as I’ve lived in the IE (Inland Empire for my non-Southern California friends) for all my life. Growing up near Pomona (home of the NHRA’s Winternationals, Finals and Hot Rod Museum), I’ve been immersed into car-culture since I was little.

And Adam Eaton was on rehab assignment, so I got to see him as well as some other prospects that could make the big leagues in a couple years.

But now that I am in the LA area, time to visit other minor league parks that are close by too. I love baseball. Good stuff!
