    OOB belongs in the new Futures League. Much better owners, especially with Lowell SPinners (Red Sox minor league affiliate) they are the best in the business at making a party in the ballpark. my money is on the FUtures Collegiate league

    A lousy lease and a shortage of host families, both things that should have been taken care of before the team moved ,there didn’t help.
