    I was hoping for a name change.

    Someone said the Skeet Skeet Skeets should change their name to the Sugar Land Imperials. I agree, that sounds like a really cool name and is appropriate to the area.

    Uniforms would be comfy and go with the Astros as villains motif....

    It's been a while since I've lived in Houston, but how is Strom going to hit the traffic to make that anything less than an hour drive?

    Get to the Choppa!

    Edit: though in seriousness, I assume the players would come to MMP during off days for bullpen sessions.

    Ahhhhh...I didn't take that into account. Is there any flat land out in Fort Bend?

    He could always schedule the minor league workouts for 1-4am.

    They keep the OF flat. Not like Astros have any AAA OFs at the moment.

    The Sugar Land Airport is actually right across the street (hwy 6) from the stadium. As an aside, it's all flat land in Fort Bend!

    Back when they formed the team, one of the possible names was the Sugar Land King Canes. That would have been my choice.

    I'm really stoked about this. I always attend a few Skeeters game each year. It's a nice, relaxing ballpark to enjoy a game. And now having the Astros AAA squad in my backyard, it's even more of an incentive to go.

    Been to a couple of corporate events at suites at that ballpark...and went to a game with family the first season. Nice ballpark with good amenities, that I'm certain the Astros will improve. I'm really excited about this. Can't wait till they come out with the Skeeters '47 Brand caps :)
