My World Tuesday #2

Let me root, root, root for the home team…
Jack Norworth

In honor of the World Series, I decided to post these photos of L. P. Frans Stadium. L.P. Frans is home to the Hickory Crawdads (affectionately known to the locals as the ‘Dads) minor league baseball team. After ten years with the Pittsburgh Pirates, they became an affiliate of the Texas Rangers in September. For a description, please hover over the photos. (If you scroll down two posts, the second photo was also taken at the stadium.)

My World Tuesday is a new meme brought to you by the Skywatch Friday team. For a virtual tour of home towns around the world, please visit That’s My World!

  9. Thank you for the wonderful tour. This 2nd week of meme really makes us appreciate the many places that we don’t usually see or ever had a chance to visit like the one you showed me in this post. Hope you get to have time to check my world too. Another great job and more to come in the coming weeks.
