1993 Manager Change

I am sad to say that Marc Hollingsworth has decided to relinquish the Portland Pickles franchise. He leaves in good standing and is welcomed back at anytime. Stepping in to take his place is a returning SPB-4 manager Jeff Thomas. He will be renaming the team the NorCal Golden Spikes, and will remain in Fulton County Stadium. His email address is jst81@sbcglobal.net. The information on the website will be updated shortly. Welcome back Jeff!

1993 Stadium Change

Stadium changes to make note of:

Nidavellir Dwarves vacate Three Rivers Stadium and move into the Kingdome.
The Gnomes move out of County Stadium and move into Anaheim Stadium.
The Leathernecks move out of Royals Stadium and into County Stadium.

This leaves Royals Stadium and Three Rivers Stadium as the two open parks.
