As the defending Texas League champion, the San Antonio Missions march into the 2012 season with their sights set on an encore performance of 2011, when they compiled 94 wins and were named Minor League Baseball’s best Double-A program. As an affiliate of the San Diego Padres, the Missions roster simmers with future MLB stars, including the organization’s No. 2 prospect, pitcher Casey Kelly, who lassoed 11 victories and an All-Star nod last season. Slugging right fielder Sawyer Carroll, meanwhile, terrorized opposing pitchers with a stoic stare down and 18 home runs, and outfielder Daniel Robertson flashed his need for speed by stealing 20 bases and hiding them in the trunk of his stealth jet.
Inside Nelson Wolff Municipal Stadium, towering fly balls and smooth diving catches launch 6,200 Missions fans from their seats, and special promotions throughout the summer, such as Cricket Dollar Nights, fill mitts with discounted deals. Last season, the Missions amassed an eye-popping 55–15 record at home, thanks to raucous supporters and the opposing teams’ dugout being located above a strategically placed sinkhole.
