On perhaps a more serious note for the Skeeters, who are off to a sluggish 11-13 record, All-Star outfielder Adam Godwin has returned to the roster. Godwin set a league record with 50 stolen bases and hit .282 for Gary Gaetti’s 2013 powerhouse, but started this season in Mexico.
Pitcher Mike Piazza, a cousin of the former major league star of the same name, has allowed only two hits in 5.2 innings (two appearances) so far with Laredo, TX in the American Association. He made one start, and shows a 0-0, 3.17 log for the Lemurs.
Ozzie Guillen’s son, Ozney, landed a Frontier League job.
