Conditions at Hagerstown Suns games are not 'poor' To the editor: You recently published a letter from a reader on the subject of the Hagerstown Suns baseball team that used the term “poor conditions” to describe what the public can expect when attending a ballgame at Municipal Stadium. As a regular fan at Suns' games, I can tell you that conditions there are anything but “poor.” The Suns do an excellent job of looking after the comfort and safety of their customers.

“I read the article about the city council shutting down the feeding of people in the city parking lot, and I want to paraphrase their action by saying, 'Carl Booker and Soul Food Ministries, we don't mind you feeding the poor, but would you please just hide them somewhere?'” - Halfway “I am appalled at the callous decision that the Hagerstown City Council has made about not allowing organizations to use parking lots for the distribution of free food. They act like the homeless are some kind of a plague that they have to get rid of. Every city has homeless.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers rallied from an early 3-0 deficit with a pair of four-run innings to cool off the Hagerstown Suns 9-4 on Saturday night in a South Atlantic League game.

After a double play, Khayyan Norfork singled and Craig Manuel walked to set up Perez.

Athletes carry many labels. They are considered heroes, role models and idols. They are called gladiators, warriors and - in some circles - prima donnas. They are categorized as stars, utility or role players. But when it comes down to it, they are nothing more than ditch diggers. They create holes. That sounds a little degrading. Follow this train of thought before it derails. After aiming for fame and fortune, most athletes would like to leave a void. They want to be impact players - leaders or trendsetters that transcend their sport.

The Hagerstown Suns seldom wonder when Wander Ramos is in the lineup. They don't have to. The outfielder has a habit of coming through. Ramos returned from the disabled list on Saturday and promptly delivered a two-run double in Hagerstown's five-run first inning to lead the Suns to a 7-4 win over Rome. The win kept the Suns (52-38, 14-9) a half-game behind Hickory in the South Atlantic League Northern Division second-half standings. Hagerstown set the tone for the game by rallying for all five first-inning runs after its first two hitters recorded outs against Rome starter Wes Parsons (3-5)

In 1981, the Washington County Board of Commissioners faced a great debate, one that ultimately resulted in a 3-2 vote to bring affiliated minor-league baseball to Hagerstown. The great debate continues today - except now the issue has shifted to whether the city and county want to retain the Hagerstown Suns by constructing a new stadium. With no light at the end of the tunnel in Hagerstown, Suns majority owner Bruce Quinn is talking with officials in Fredericksburg, Va., in the hope of a forging a deal that would result in a new home for his club, a low-level Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
