Love to see these guys hit the ball. This is the Cal League after all. 70 year old Sam Lynn Ballpark has seen enough close games - how about turning this into a blowout guys? For Josh Smith's benefit this IS the stadium where Don Drysdale began his career - Smith can only hope his is as illustrious.
