WEST PALM BEACH TROPICS 1990
Reviewed as a league of pot-bellied, slow-footed, weak-armed, stone-gloved old farts pretending they could still play, the Senior Professional BB League was much like permanent Spring Training averaging a gate of 921. The Tropics were one of the eight original teams finishing 15 games ahead of the pack. They went 52-20 in the regular season to run away with the Southern Division title, but lost a playoff game on Babe Ruth’s birthday. Dick Williams, Dave Kingman, Rollie Fingers and Ron Washington’s club leading offense (he hit .359 with a league-high 73 RBI) gave the Tropics a decided Oakland Athletics flavor. Their former home, Municipal Stadium, is now a Home Depot. Orange Wool Flannel Crown and 3 inch Visor, All Embroidered Logo. Leather Sweat Band.
