Akron Aeros 2011 Season in Review
( Aeros)Fans in Akron are not used to this whole no-postseason thing. The Aeros have been used to postseason baseball, but at the turn of the decade, it's been two straight seasons of cleaning up Canal Park after the first few days of September.

Photos: Kinston celebrates making it to the postseason
I have been out in Woodbridge, VA covering Kinston the last few days. The trip was initially planned to see Kinston play at the end of the year and also possibly see their final games as the Indians' High-A affiliate.
