Hagerstown Suns majority owner Bruce Quinn said Friday that he plans to move the minor league team to Fredericksburg, Va., but also wants to keep professional baseball in the Hub City. “Our intention is to go to Fredericksburg with the (Class) A ball team that we have, but also our intention is to wait for the plans here that the city council is discussing,” Quinn said after a closed-door meeting with Hagerstown officials Friday afternoon at City Hall. Quinn said the Suns' name would not go to Fredericksburg, and he's exploring ways to bring another “undetermined” professional baseball team to Hagerstown that could be operated by the Suns ownership and associated investors or another baseball ownership group - once the city decides on a location and master plan that includes a stadium project.

A few minutes into a conversation with Alice Brumbaugh, the George Woltz grandfather clock she donated to the Alice Virginia and David W. Fletcher Branch of the Washington County Free Library chimed the hour as it has for more than two centuries. “It seemed right for it to come back to Hagerstown,” Brumbaugh said. The Chambersburg, Pa., woman said the clock, which was built in Hagerstown, has been in her family at least a century. It now graces a corner of the John Clinton Frye Western Maryland Room, the repository for the rebuilt library's collection of rare books, records and other documents of the region.

The Hagerstown Suns have spent an entire season proving that size doesn't matter. The Suns haven't been the biggest team on the block, but they have been able to rule the South Atlantic League Northern Division playground for much of the season. The same could be said about the crowds supporting the Suns at Municipal Stadium. They have been a small, hearty group that shows muscle when needed. That is what the Suns will be looking for Friday night. Hagerstown hosts Game 2 of the Northern Division playoffs at 7:05 p.m. with a chance to move into the SAL championship series with a win over West Virginia.
