Blue Crabs should stay

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Larry Tay­lor, Wal­dorf

You re­cently re­ported that there are on­go­ing dis­cus­sions to re­place the South­ern Mary­land Blue Crabs base­ball with a low sin­gle A mi­nor league team. I would hate this de­ci­sion if it came to pass. The Blue Crabs are one of the few ameni­ties in Charles County other than shop­ping and chain restau­rants that I truly en­joy. Most of the Blue Crabs play­ers have AA, AAA and Ma­jor League base­ball ex­pe­ri­ence. The cal­iber of pro­fes­sional base­ball that we get to en­joy lo­cally in Wal­dorf is very high. I used to go see the Baysox in Bowie who are a AA mi­nor league team, and the Blue Crabs are a much bet­ter ver­sion of base­ball.

The man­age­ment at Re­gency Fur­ni­ture Sta­dium has been dili­gent in con­stantly try­ing to en­hance the game night ex­pe­ri­ence for the fans. I hope the cit­i­zens get a chance to weigh in on the de­ci­sion to send the Blue Crabs pack­ing be­fore it is too late.
