Ex-Jay Cecil Fielder has been hired to manage the Atlantic City Surf, one of the league rivals for our newly christened Ottawa Rapids. Cecil Fielder managing in the gambling capital of the U.S. eastern seaboard; well, that should be an interesting sociological experiement.
On the positive side, going by the picture that's on the Surf's website, Fielder has slimmed down a little since his playing days, when he of course won three RBI titles with the Detroit Tigers in the '90s.
Via Carl K. at the Unofficial Ottawa Rapids Blog comes word that the top hitter on last season's Lynx, Gary Burnham, has signed to play in Taiwan. Wish him well.
