Larry Stone writes an excellent piece on "..the nuttiest baseball team the Northwest has ever seen" in today's Seattle Times. Stone talks about the Portland Mavericks, so named because they had no Major League affiliation. They were in the Northwest League with the Walla Walla Padres and became the team everyone loved to hate. I had been wanting to do a post on the team, but really did not know where to begin.
