The Scouting Report
Just two years ago, the Missions captured their 12th Texas League championship and won 94 games in the process—the most in franchise history. And in 2012, much like a boxer searching for a light switch in the dark, the squad never stopped slugging, finishing the season third in home runs. They'll need to display a similar show of power right off the bat this season, as two of the league's top teams, the Tulsa Drillers and Springfield Cardinals, visit The Wolff during the first week.
San Antonio Missions
On Wednesday, September 14, 2011, the Missions began what would turn out to be the longest postseason game in Texas League history. Playing against the Arkansas Travelers in the league's championship series, the Missions battled to a 5–4 victory that took 20 innings—and a spillover into Thursday—to settle. The win propelled the Missions to a series sweep, earning the franchise its 12th championship since the Texas League was founded in 1888.
Throughout those 113 years, the Texas League underwent many changes, but San Antonio stood firm—the only one of the league's six original teams to play in three different centuries. As the San Diego Padres' Double-A affiliate, the Missions continue their legacy at their home field, Wolff Stadium, a 6,200-seat facility complete with a grass berm in left field where fans can sprawl out to watch the innings and where umpires sunbathe between games.
