||Pelicans Play Was One Of the Top 10 Events In Myrtle Beach For ’99
On January 1, The Sun News in Myrtle Beach reported the following story:
“For most minor-league clubs starting over in a new area, it would have been enough to simply appeal to the fans. But with a fan-friendly approach and some inspired play, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (83-63) were a success off the field and on, capturing a share of the Carolina League championship – as well as the hearts of their public – in the franchise’s first year in Myrtle Beach.
Myrtle Beach defeated Kinston in a best-of-three semifinal series, then split four games with the Wilmington Blue Rocks before Hurricane Floyd forced the cancellation of the deciding game, resulting in co-champions.
With a number of the best prospects in the Atlanta Braves organization and returning Manager Brian Snitker and pitching coach Bruce Dal Canton, the team expects to do well on the diamond in 2000. And with the kickoff of programs such as Pelicans Perch, which houses players with locals, the team looks to continue winning over its adopted home as well.”
Keep up the good work.
