One can only imagine how exciting Friday is going to be for Linden Black, the first local investor in the American Association's St. Joseph (MO) Blacksnakes. They play their first game Phil Welch Stadium Friday night.

He was a young boy the last time St. Joe had a professional team and that was in 1954, some 52 years ago. He confesses the return of a professional team "has been a dream of mine for a long time" and President Mark Schuster says "he (Black) was critical to the team coming here and will be a great help moving forward."

We hope the weatherman gives them a beautiful Midwestern evening and at the risk of alienating the visiting Sioux Falls (SD) Canaries that the Blacksnakes get off to a rousing start.
