SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Blue Wahoos worth cheering about

Published: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 03:49 PM.

I finally made it to Pensacola for a Blue Wahoos baseball game last week.

For those of you who might not know, the Blue Wahoos comprise the Cincinnati Reds’ AA Minor League Baseball affiliate that moved to Pensacola last season.

The Wahoos beat the Chattanooga Lookouts 4-3 in extra innings. Ironically, the Lookouts are the AA team of my favorite Major League club, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Wednesday was one of those nights when I couldn't help thinking, "What if?"

The simple question has to do with former Crestview High School baseball teammates and 2006 graduates Anthony Brown and Blake Dean. Brown played three years in the Cincinnati organization. Dean walked away from baseball after two years with the Dodgers.

For a few moments I thought about what it would have been like to see the former Bulldog teammates reunited on the professional stage.
