If this is their stadium it looks like a nice one. http://www.maritimepark.us/mp/N20.html

This park is going to be one of the more attractive parks in the Southern League. The park has been under construction for a while and the completion date is January 2012.

There are pictures of the construction attached above. The Reds AA affiliate should be in good hands for some time to come. And yes, my wife and I plan to see a couple of games in Pensacola next year. The beaches there are not bad either.

Apparently the Pensacola Blue Wahoo team logo is complete and has been submitted to MiLB for review. I'm anxious to see what they came up with.

I say we should organize a RedsZone.com caravan to Pensacola early next spring. Spring break?

Anyone on here a travel agent? Get a nice bus and some cheap group rate hotel rooms.

Does this do anything to appease the people with vacation homes in FLA that saw the Reds as a benefit? I remember the fuss they created when ST was moved to AZ.

I doubt it. Pensacola's about 500 miles away from Sarasota.

Received the following blurb from the Pensacola club...

On deck...mark your calendars for Gallery Night, November 18th, 2011. That evening we will be unveiling the Blue Wahoos team logo, as well as putting special Blue Wahoo merchandise on sale - just in time for the Holidays!

I'm anxious to see what they came up with.

The Reds only have a player development deal with the Pensacola franchise through 2012, correct?

As of right now, yes.

Don't want to bore you guys too much but the Carolina Mudcats named their 2012 manager...rather significant I believe...

CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians today named Edwin Rodriguez as Manager of the Class-A Advanced Carolina Mudcats of the Carolina League.

Rodriguez, 51, compiled a two-year managerial record of 78-85 (.479) over his two seasons as Manager of the Florida Marlins from June 23, 2010 to June 18, 2011, becoming the first Puerto Rican-born manager in Major League history. Prior to his stint as Marlins skipper he managed in the Florida Player Development System from 2005-2010,first joining the Marlins in 2004 as hitting coach for the then Double-A Mudcats.

In 2004, Rodriguez mentored future major leaguers Josh Willingham and Chip Ambres as the Mudcats finished 73-66. He then spent time as manager of the Marlins' Gulf Coast rookie league team (2005-2006), Class-A Greensboro Grasshoppers (2007-2008) and Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs (2008-2010).

Just a tidbit about Edwin. Everyone I have talked to in the Marlins organization loved him. I'm looking forward to him returning to Zebulon.

I'm not a big gear guy, but thought some people might like a look and/or a crack at the new Blue Wahoos cap.

Thanks for posting mace. All I'm seeing is the alternate but I like it. You never know how these logo things can go. The blue and white combo look good. I'm really impressed with the excitement this team is generating there.

Here's the page where they shows the designs. They show a bunch of designs for them.

The Wahoos will play one series in Chattanooga and one series in Tennessee this summer. In addition to getting to their new park, I'd like to get to a couple of games in these two series as well. Mrs. Muddie might tell me to rethink that strategy though. The Tennessee series, like last year, will be carried on MiLB.TV.

The Wahoo logos, in my opinion, don't look so good. Again, I really like the alternate hat and may call one a Christmas gift. Beyond that one though, not so great. We'll see what the full gear looks like when they take the field.

JaxRed, I am assuming you'll get to Pensacola a couple times this year? Looks like 13 games that the Wahoos will be in Jax.

Is it April yet!

I'll be catching most if not all of the Wahoo's games in Jax. I attended every game religiously of the Reds (Lookouts/Mudcats) for years, but the last couple the product on the field was so bad I only attended a couple.

Still a 5 hour drive to Pensacola, so that may be a one time trip.

The Wahoos seems very excited to be with the Reds. I hope the Reds can make that feeling last.

Very sad to see that there is no longer a Kinston team on the list. That is a shame, seriously.

I cannot wait, I live only 1 hour from Pensacola, and also actually currently trying to get a job with them...job or not, I plan on going to many games
