From our friends over on the news side of The Journal News, former Yankees catcher and current broadcaster John Flaherty is part of an ownership group that is working to bring baseball to Rockland County.
Flaherty is from the area and is part of Bottom 9 Baseball, the group that is working to lease a new stadium so that Rockland can have a team in the Can-Am League.
While we’re linking to things, we’ll throw a link to poor Shane Lindsay, who seems to have several teams that like him, but none that like him quite enough. Lindsay in the Yankees system briefly this season — if you blinked, you missed it — before being claimed off waivers by the Indians earlier this month. Today Lindsay was designated for assignment again — third time this season — to make room for a Jayson Nix waiver claim.
