Back for Opening Day 2009

Baseball finally returned on Sunday. Minor League ball returns tonight.

The Dugout is at Roger Dean Stadium, which frequent readers know is the home of the Class A Palm Beach Cardinals and the Jupiter Hammerheads, both members of the Florida State League. The photo shows the Cardinals taking BP, while the Hammerheads loosen up.

It's been a little quiet on the main site, and for that we apologize. The Dugout spent much of the last two months covering spring training for the Associated Press - which was great, but left little time to devote to the minors. These last few days have been catch-up mode. Not quite midseason form, but getting there.

For those of you accustomed to reading about the fun side of minor league baseball on this blog and our site,, welcome back. To those of you new to the site, welcome, too. We hope you enjoy what you see in these pages and continue to return to the blog and site.

And, as always, we welcome your ideas for stories or even general site improvements.

Baseball is back, baby. Lets have fun.
