Editorial: Great sports opportunity

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Well summer is here, and it has come in with a bang. I said when I moved here that the high humidity would not be a problem. I may have to rethink that statement. I am sure that I will get used to it.

With summer comes the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and everything that this area has to offer. One of those great opportunities happens next week. Tuesday night the Montgomery Biscuits host the Southern League All-star game. This is a rare opportunity to see a group of young men, many of which are on their way to the major leagues. In time you will be able to say "I saw him before anyone knew who he was".

It is also a chance to see a first class minor league franchise in action. The Biscuits put on a great show every night and Tuesday they will go the extra mile. We are very fortunate to have the team and the stadium in downtown Montgomery.

The week starts with an All Star Social on Monday in The Alley. Fans will get a chance to get up close with the players, take pictures and get autographs. Gameday starts with a home run derby at 6 p.m. at Riverwalk Stadium. The game starts at 7:35 p.m.

The weather forecast looks great. So grab your kids or a couple of buddies and enjoy the summer and a little baseball in Montgomery.
