We now know who has the contract to purchase the Tennessee Brewery, saving it from demolition this summer. The CA reports that cell tower developer Billy Orgel has the contract. As of yet it is not known what Mr. Orgel plans to do with the building.
Huge night at the Redbirds tonight for their 6:05 game against the Sacramento River Cats (gates at AutoZone Park open at 5). It will be a fireworks night, the last of the season. The fireworks will be set to superhero-themed music, because it is also Superhero & Comic Night. The Redbirds invite fans to come to the game dressed as their favorite superhero or comic character. Select players will sign autographs in the plaza from 5 to 5:30 – remember, these guys are only one step away from the big leagues, so you might very well be getting your merchandise signed by the All-Stars of tomorrow. There will be baby races as well.
