Big effect for next season?

Jason Cromer was on the Biscuits' original team and said Monday that a Southern League championship could heighten an already great atmosphere at Riverwalk Stadium.

The Biscuits face Huntsville in the Southern League championship series this week. Montgomery returned to the league in 2004 and has drawn at least 300,000 fans each season, but a league title (and even a successful season) could jack up the fun for 2007.

"It would add more excitement next year," Cromer said. "The excitement is already here and has been since Opening Day, but it never hurts to add more."

Saturday's 2-0 win over Jacksonville finished that series and came before an announced crowd of only 4,013 -- the smallest home Saturday crowd in Biscuits history -- but Cromer said it was an intense crowd ... and loud.

"Especially for the turnout," he said. "This is playoff baseball, so a lot of people don't know we're in town and it's football season, but it was a good crowd."

Question what if the game tonight is rained out, Double Hitter tomorrow? Games get moved back a day?

All the games would get moved back a day.

I'm really depressed over the lack of coverage the local TV stations have had on the Biscuits playoffs. They spend 20 minutes on football alone, and only 30 to 60 seconds on the playoffs. And one of them, WSFA 12 is a sponsor of the team! The paper is doing a great job, but the TV is really a let down....
