After recently signing as a Class A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, the Carolina Mudcats fill Five County Stadium’s diamond with scorching line drives and whistling fastballs as they begin their inaugural season in the Carolina League. After serving two seasons as the Florida Marlins’ manager—the first Puerto Rican–born chief in MLB history—Edwin Rodriguez descends from the big leagues’ towering thrones of sunflower seeds ready to impart a wealth of knowledge on the club. In the past, the team has helped launch the careers of players such as Tim Wakefield, Miguel Cabrera, and Matt Holliday, and though its final roster has yet to be mowed into the outfield grass, fans may have the chance to scout such budding youngsters as Jesus Aguilar, who led Cleveland’s minor-league affiliates in 2011 with 82 RBIs while clubbing 23 homers into orbit.
With its rows of box seats surrounding the infield, Five County Stadium accompanies the on-the-field excitement with a family-friendly atmosphere, including appearances from mascot Muddy the Mudcat, who waltzes around dispensing high fives—mascots’ official sign language for ”I’m trapped in this suit.”
