After a shaky off-season a year ago, the Hannibal Cavemen made it a point this year to get out the word that they are headed for their fourth season in the Prospect League with a vengeance. The 2012 schedule and roster have been out for several weeks now, and they've put out the word for the need for host families for the players.

I mention this because, for the third year, you will be able to hear selected Cavemen games on We will stream all 30 home games, along with the half dozen games against the Gems in Quincy. Bill Shuler and I will again be at the mike for the webcasts. Of course, nothing beats going to the ballpark, and Clemens Field is a wonderful place to watch a game. The season starts May 29.
