I'm in the process of migrating information from this website over to our new one, sponsored by the Minnesota Baseball Association. MBA has created a single place online where all town teams will maintain their websites, and they've required teams to do so. Teams that do not create an MBA website will be disqualified from the playoffs, so it makes sense for us to make this move now. Last year, I maintained two sites: this one with ballcharts.com, and one with MBA.
The MBA site, which uses the Score Monster utility, is actually pretty good for our needs. I'll still be able to post schedules, rosters, news items, photos, and all the other things that I've done in the past. I'll also be able to provide live game scoring using my iPhone, which is a nice feature. I'm thinking about adding a Twitter account as well.
The ballcharts.com page will not dissapear; I'll leave it up all season so that people can find the link to the new site. I'm going to let the ballcharts.com subscription expires, so ads will appear on our page by mid-April or so. That won't be a big deal.
Check out our new page and let me know what you think: Farming Flames. Go Flames!
The Farming Flames 2014 schedule has now been posted to the MBA website. Although the club may add an additional exhibition game or two, the league games are all here. To see the full schedule, please go to: http://www.mnbaseball.org/team/FarmingFlames.
Farming opens the 2014 season on Saturday, April 26th with a 1:30pm home exhibition against the Holdingford Express. The first league game against St. Martin takes place on Sunday, May 4, 1:30pm, at Farming.
The Flames are home for five of their first six games. The schedule features exhibition games against a number of good area clubs including Holdingford, Avon, Regal, Luxemburg, Opole, Pearl Lake, and Willmar. It should be another great season for Farming, and the homes games will be played in the beautiful new ballpark.
Welcome to the Farming Flames Website
If you have any team or player photos, weblinks, team information, or other items that you'd like to see on this website, please email them to Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll run everything past Dale before I put anything up.
I'll keep making improvements to this website throughout the season. Thanks for checking back, and go Flames!
