The Scouting Report
After back-to-back International League and Triple-A national titles in 2010 and 2011, the Columbus Clippers failed to make the playoffs the next two seasons. Such variance comes with the territory of minor-league baseball, but the 2014 Clippers appear primed to reverse that trend and return to elite status. Through 95 games, Columbus has a 49–46 record behind the International League's top offense, scoring 439 runs behind a lineup that has swatted 73 home runs and 413 RBIs. A pitching staff with a solid 3.67 ERA complements the offense, presenting a balanced attack like a switch-hitter who changes sides mid-pitch.
An International League mainstay, the Columbus Clippers have prepped future stars for the big leagues since 1977. The team has claimed 10 Governors' Cups over the years, most recently in 2015. The Clippers have served as the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians since 2009, helping players hone the skills that they need to succeed in the majors and impress friends during the piñata portion of birthday parties.
Up to 10,100 Clippers fans pack into Huntington Park, which still gleams with a new-stadium sparkle after sprouting up in 2009. During that inaugural season, the facility was named Ballpark of the Year by multiple sources, including BaseballParks.com and Digitalballparks.com, whose writers referred to the stadium's design as "the most exciting we've seen in two decades."
