Another change in ownership
Charlotte's baseball team underwent big-time changes. First, GM mmccann55 resigned his position, turning over the reins to new gm sirson. Sirson's first major order of business was changing the name of the team from the Princesses to the Lions. The locker room was pleased at the change in name; when asked, C Tony Stieb said, "Thank God. I hated the name Princesses. Just something not right about having that as a team name." LF Luis Melo concurred; when asked if he liked the name Lions, he said, "I'm not crazy about it. But it's way better than what we had. Now can we get something other than pink shirts and baseball pants instead of tutus?" The equipment manager, watching the interview, immediately nodded yes toward Melo.
