Life in the minors isn't as idyllic as BULL DURHAM would have you believe. Recently, the Lake County Fielders, from the North American Baseball League, experienced a mutiny. On July 9, Lake County manager Tim Johnson resigned before a game and eleven of his players refused to play in protest. Apparently they were not getting paid. (No, Frank McCourt had nothing to do with this. Actually, a part owner of the Fielders is Kevin Costner.)
Things got wackier. A few nights later, Jose Canseco player/manager of an opposing team pitched against the Fielders. The following day, Lake County traded nine players and released fourteen others.
And then their play-by-play announcer, Qumar Zaman, quit on the air. Here's his final sign-off and it's a doozy.
