Corporal Klinger Would Be So Proud

Some quick hits:

Our Sports Central (a fantastic resource that I just discovered) posted the top 15 clubs for Minor League attendance today. But they also printed this chart of the top 10 seasons for the Toledo Mud Hens.

1. 2007 — 590,159

Oddly enough, none of them fall during the heyday of M*A*S*H, which is honestly the only reason I know who the Mud Hens are.

and, in other news:

Northern League: The Calgary Vipers and Edmonton Cracker-Cats are apparently serious in their consideration of a move to the Golden Baseball League. The teams are not happy with a 2008 Northern League schedule that has the two teams playing each other 32 times to avoid travel expenses. One rumor about the Northern League had two of the league’s Chicago-based franchises considering a move to the Frontier League.

Is it too much to ask that they just trade nicknames? I’d love to see the Calgary Cracker-Cats. Seriously.
