    Wow, they are already more organized than the major league team that plays some 30 miles away. Release the Hounds, Charles!

    I ended up going for a couple of hours and was very impressed. I'll post photos soon.

    Frank Howard's nickname is "Hondo" not "Hendo".

    Frank Howard was as good or better than all of the great players in the 60's. He would have hit 600 home runs if he had anyone hitting behind him on those bad Senators teams. He was the most feared hitter in baseball. And he was a class act to boot. Frank Howard belongs in the Hall of Fame! His numbers are similar to Jim Rice's. Bob Costas needs to do a biography on Frank so younger fans get to know a real All Star. Older fans would like to see it as well.
