I’m not sure how July could have gone any better:
- We went to seven games and got at least one lineup card at five (we didn’t stay until the end of the other two games), and seven lineup cards total.
- We went to four new stadiums: Great American Ballpark (Cincinnati Reds); UC Health Stadium (Florence Freedom); Dwyer Stadium (Batavia Muckdogs); and Security Service Field (Colorado Springs Sky Sox).
- We got Frontier League 25th Anniversary, Future Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) 2017 ASG and Cape Cod League 2017 ASG balls. As an added bonus, we also snagged a Cape Cod League 2016 ASG ball during BP.
- We got lineup cards from two new leagues, PCL and Frontier, and from six new teams altogether: Nationals, Cornbelters, Freedom, Muckdogs Rainiers and Sky Sox.

The rest of the season will be a let down relative to July, but we’ll keep at it.
