Former Met is your Atlantic League Pitcher of the Year

By: Devon Teeple

Thank goodness for Independent baseball. I've been writing about this for years and the stories of players finding success never ceases to amaze me. 

The New York Mets drafted Chris Schwinden in the 22nd round of the 2008 amateur draft. Since 2008, the Visalia, California native has been toiling in the minors for five different organizations, including the Mets, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, and Texas Rangers.

Less Than Jake: Over 20 years and still doing it their way

By: Devon Teeple

Less Than Jake has been in the music biz for over 22 years. Their style of music can be classified as a mix of punk, ska and reggae. While that caters to a wide variety of generations and people, it's rarely if ever heard on the radio. Unless you specifically search out punk stations on satellite radio, it's almost entirely non-existent.

The punk culture is fascinating. The music is passionate, political, high-energy, fun, and can vary between Hardcore, Pop Punk, Skate, Ska, and Melodic. But one thing that all these artists have in common, is the love of music and putting on the best performances they can for their fans. Punk is not radio friendly, yet these bands, many of them who have been around for the past 30 years, continue to travel around the world, performing in venues where every single person, regardless of status, race and religion, can sing every song word for word. The atmosphere is like no other with every fan listening to a band that means the world to them.

Indy Ball Weekly Perspective: A new Pirate and the Indy's speed it up

By: Devon Teeple

Chris Peacock becomes a Pirate

Three independent seasons and six teams later, a minor league contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates is in the cards for Chris Peacock. It's been a long road for Peacock, who went undrafted out of the University of Mobile and at Faulkner State. His first two years spent in the Independent Pecos League and the North American Baseball League weren't anything to write home about. He went 4-4 with a 5.14 ERA his first year, 4-2, 7.65 the next. With experience you fine-tune your skills, and true talent emerges. 2014 was that for Peacock. He started the year off with the Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings, winning a career best five games surrendering only nine runs in 36 innings and striking out a career-high 10.9 batters per nine innings. He joined the Wichita Wingnuts in August for the playoff push and went 2-0 in six games. During the Wingnuts trek to the 2014 American League Championship, he posted a 2.70 ERA in four games.
