Florence Freedom's 2009 season is off to a hot start

The Florence Freedom just concluded there first series win in franchise history over the Gateway Grizzlies on Sunday. The team is off to a hot start boasting a 7-3 record which is good for first place in the Frontier League East.

Second baseman Billy Mottram belted his 8th home run this season on Sunday. That's pretty remarkable considering the Freedom are only 10 games into the season.

Owner Clint Brown has done a good job with turning around the franchise. A successful minor league team needs to have great promotions, good facilities, and a family fun environment, all of which he's achieved. It also helps that he tries to bring in players with local ties such as Tim Grogan and Jay Johnson, two former colonels who are trying to resurrect their playing careers.

Oh and Adam, Obama bobble heads are the promotion this upcoming Tuesday, now that's "Frontier League."
