Day 5 of road trip includes look at former Whitecaps

Day 5 of my Cooperstown road trip included a baseball doubleheader — a matinee game at Classic Park, home of the Lake County Captains, and a night game at Jerry Uht Park, home of the Erie SeaWolves.

The latter game was my first visit to an Eastern League ballpark, and I liked what I saw. But since this is a Midwest League blog, I won’t write much about it here. I will, however, note that I got to see several former West Michigan Whitecaps play for the SeaWolves. (Unfortunately for the SeaWolves, they lost the game 4-3 to the Richmond Flying Squirrels, who have a six-game winning streak and the best record in the Western Division of the Eastern League.)

Here are a couple of my favorite shots I took of former Whitecaps before the game:

SeaWolves RF Steven Moya (2011-12 Whitecaps) leads the Eastern League with 26 HR and 82 RBI.

Erie is managed by Lance Parrish, the former Detroit Tigers All-Star player who was skipper of the Great Lakes Loons in 2007 (their inaugural season). Richmond’s skipper is former major-leaguer Russ Morman, who played for the 1984 Appleton Foxes and managed the 2000-01 Kane County Cougars.
