Think on the Bright Side

There is a chance that the Shorebirds will be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention after action today.  If Kannapolis wins and/or the Shorebirds loss, the playoffs will no longer be in reach.  So, I know some of you may be disappointed but let’s try and think about the season on the bright side.  In the final 11 games, if the Shorebirds go at least 4-7, they will have another winning season.  It will be the third in a row as a franchise and 10th in 14 years (500 or better).   

Bold seasons are winning seasons for the Shorebirds.
