The Carolina League matchup between the Salem Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals High-A affiliate Wilmington Blue Rocks was postponed on Thursday due to inclement weather. A fan in attendance at Judy Johnson Field in Wilmington filmed the insane lightning show. A few seconds into the video it appears on bolt strikes extremely close to where they were standing. Scary stuff.
Longtime pro wrestler and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has been a regular on the minor league baseball stadium appearance circuit this summer, signing autographs at a number of stadiums throughout the minor leagues. Wayne Carter of the Carroll County Times in Maryland conducted a wide ranging interview with Lawler ahead of his appearance Friday night when the Frederick Keys host the Winston Salem Dash in Carolina League action. In addition to his passion for baseball, Lawler talks about his start in wrestling, the Michael Cole storyline, getting to wrestle The Miz in a series of matches, the current CM Punk storyline, continuing to wrestle in his 60’s, and more. It’s a great read for the baseball fan and a great read for the wrestling fan.
