The Golden League received considerable attention when Edmonton and Calgary joined the league this fall, with one bonus being that now with eight teams the league could justify going to two divisions.

An added benefit came along recently when Darryl Brinkley, who hit .400 for Calgary and was named Northern League Player of the Year last season, signed to play another year. At 38, there had seemed to be some doubt. Now, the returning Golden League cities (Long Beach, Chico and Orange County in California, Yuma, AZ, St. George, UT and Reno, NV) will get to see the man Vipers Manager Mike Busch calls "the most mentally prepared player I've ever worked with" up close.

Good stuff for all concerned.
