Hagerstown Suns - Out with the old ... Suns clubhouse sale brings together past, present By BOB PARASILITI / Staff Writer For a few brief hours on Saturday, it will seem like time will be standing still at Municipal Stadium. The Hagerstown Suns will be hosting a Clubhouse Sale, baseball's version of a yard sale with old uniforms, equipment and souvenirs being put on the block for clearance. But at the same time, it will also be one of those rare instances where the past, the present and the future will all be in one place.

HAGERSTOWN -- Today is the first day of spring, a season that ushers in baseball and outdoor activities. It follows a winter in which only 12 inches of snow fell from October to February in the Hagerstown area. The winter's snowfall was mild compared with previous ones, according to www.i4weather.net , a Web site operated by local weather observer Greg Keefer. About 23.6 inches of snow fell in 2006-07, 14.4 inches fell in 2005-06 and 20.6 inches fell in 2004-05.

HAGERSTOWN Little did Ryan Mock know when he decided to dress up like a big cow Saturday at Municipal Stadium that he would run into some of his diminutive "relatives. " No sooner had the gates opened for the free trick-or-treat event hosted by the Hagerstown Suns than a youngster came in wearing a cow suit, too. And it happened again and again to other adult characters ? a big Scooby-Doo met a tiny replica, and a pint-sized elephant got quite a shock when he saw his larger pachyderm cousin.

It's human nature to rely on hindsight. That "after the fact" look is always 20-20. It is the perfect view. It's life's version of being a Monday Morning Quarterback. In other words, you don't realize how good something is until it's gone. The city of Hagerstown lost a great friend this week. Looking back, it will be a real eye-opener. This advocate worked to improve and defend the image of this town. In many ways, he fought for those virtues while this town seemed to kick and scream against him. Kurt Landes left the Hagerstown Suns' front office this week with an abrupt resignation.

Where were you Sunday afternoon? I know there are more than 979 baseball fans in this region. For a change, great weather adorned the area and the Suns were at home on Guaranteed Win Day. One must be careful in choosing his words when he is new to the area without knowing the exact history of an individual or organization. I don't know what the Suns have been like in the past. I only care to know what the present and future has in store. Covering the Suns Sunday was my first venture inside Municipal Stadium.
