Catching up with a former Captain

Great story on about former Shreveport Captain Salomon Torres written by Tim Kurkjian.

Stories like these are what makes the loss of affiliated professional baseball the toughest to take. Yes it's been five years and, yes, you could make the argument I should let it die, but I'm not going to. Growing up and being able to go see future major leaguers before they become stars is something I'll always remember. Fair Grounds Field on a summer night when the Captains were in town was special.

Now it's been gone five years and probably won't be back for a long time because of geographical constraints and other factors, but seeing a Torres or a Rich Aurilia or other former Caps still bouncing around does bring back good feelings.
