SteepleCats opening day is in 84 days, three hours and 53 minutes at the time of writing this. I got that information of the teams new website. Check it out.

The new site is much cleaner and easier to navigate. It's got some good photo galleries, roster, updated news and standings on the front page. There are tabs for the schedule and then the standard information about the park and ticket prices. It even has the team records, which will be a nice reference.

However, I don't like how quickly the links send you off the site. If you go to the photo galleries you get rerouted to photobucket. If you choose stats it takes you to the league's site. And though the standings are on the front page, if you click the tab at the top it reroutes you to the league's site. I would rather have it stay on the site itself.

I knew a new website was in the works and I have no idea when this was launched. The only reason I looked was because the sun was out and I wanted to know how close that first pitch was. Baseball season is coming and it's great to see the Cats back for their 10th season.

10 seasons! It's approaching a county record. In those 10 season Wahconah Park has seen four different teams. The Pittsfield Mets were at Wahconah Park from 1989 until 2000 - and the Cats are close to beating that. Cats General Manager Sean McGrath said the city is inching closer to the longest tenure in the league. For a city that with so many businesses closing and moving, that is great. Look at how difficult it is for Pittsfield to keep a team and they have a park with even more history than Joe Wolfe.

Speaking of Joe Wolfe, that park has seen tremendous improvements since my days at second base in the Babe Ruth league. It really is a great place to catch a game.

The city really has embraced and supported the Cats so it's on you Bosley, McGrath, Bond and crew - we've given you a decade now bring us a championship.

The season opens on June 10 with a new coach, a new team and a new president. The new coach, Clayton Kuklick, was the guy the Cats wanted and they finally reeled him in. Kuklick has said that his offense style will be a lot of running. I like that. It makes for exciting games.

Sadly, all this excitement about a new website is lackluster because we still have 84 days, three hours and 14 minutes until that first pitch.
