The Revolution Will Not Be Televised


You will not be able to stay home brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
The Revolution will not be televised.

The votes are in and York's long-awaited minor league (not really) baseball team has been tagged Revolution (Flood's choice). I'm not sure York city or county could be known for "a sudden, radical, or complete change", but apparently there's some kind of connection. Other Revolutions:

New England Revolution
Greensboro Revolution

I have to admit that some of the material on the team's web site gets me a little excited about this club. The stadium location is really kind of cool - replacing an area historically known as The Swamp with a multi-million dollar baseball stadium is positive change. Maybe revolutionary. And the renderings of what the stadium will look like are impressive, complete with Brooks Robinson statue.

The Revolution will not be televised.
Will not be televised.
Will not be televised.
Will not be televised.
There will be no reruns brothers because the Revolution is live.

Looks pretty much like the Lancaster ballpark. Nice to see Keystone Baseball going with the cookie-cutter design.

Good catch clafifying that the Atlantic League is not minor league ball - at least not affiliated with MLB. Not legit. I like to think of it as semi-pro or scrub league.

I've never visited a Barnstormers game and I certainly won't visit a Revolution game. What is it with that league? Is it mandatory that team nicknames get progressively worse? Road Warriors, Barnstormers, Revolution?

The York Revs will be popular, no doubt. Like in Lancaster, "fans" will go for something to do, a family event, with no real interest in who wins and loses...or seeing quality baseball. There's a sucker born every minute.
 
I still say they should have named the team the Riots. They could have a silhoutte of Charlie Robertson leading the charge into battle.

I can envision Charlie Robertson bobble head night, a bullet give away..the possibilities are endless.
