3 states have capital cities that begin with L. Arkansas has Little Rock, Nebraska has Lincoln. These did not make the cut, as I went with Lansing Michigan. Lansing is the nearest state capital to where I live of a state that does not border my own. There are parts of Michigan, I can get to in about 2 hours. Lansing takes a little longer.
Yesterdays fact filled trip to Kaskaskia was unusual for me. Because it was actually about Kaskaskia. You may have noticed that mostly I use these state capitals as a starting off point for a topic that is often near and dear to my heart. Today’s subject is minor league baseball.
Lansing is the home of the Lansing Lugnuts which plays in the Midwest League. They are a Single A affiliate of the Toronto Bluejays. Previous to that they were aligned with the Chicago Cubs and previous to that they were with the Kansas City Royals organization when the team began in 1996.
The Lugnuts have a mascot and they even have a fight song. The lyrics are available here. Listen by clicking here. To see more a to z challenge click here. To see my 2014 a to z entry click on Late Late Show.
