Winter League updates
The Caribbean Series starts on Wednesday.
It looks like Martin Maldonado (’09) of Dominican League champion Toro del Este is the only former Rattler active in the event this year. That may change once the games start.
Down in Australia, the second round of the playoffs start on Friday…or Thursday, however that whole dateline thing works.
The first round series were #1 v. #2 and #3 v. #4. The loser of 3 v. 4 was out, but the loser of 1 v. 2 moved into a semifinal series v. the winner of 3 v. 4.
If I read that correctly, Sydney, with former Rattlers pitcher Craig Anderson, and Adelaide, with former Rattlers outfielder Jamie McOwen (’07) are scheduled to face each other this weekend while Sydney is through to the Championship Series.
It’s also summer down there!
