Topic - Ozark Patriots

The Ozark Patriots was a short-lived baseball team based in Ozark, Alabama. In 2002 they were members of the Southeastern League of Professional Baseball. They played their home games in Ozark, Alabama, at historic Eagle Stadium, which was constructed in 1946. A few Patriot standouts were Sergio Cairo, Junior Braddy, Cortney Jenkins, Steve Crampton, and Ty Ryburn. Ryburn, a pitcher, has the distinction of leading all Minor Leagues with a .141 opponents batting average during 2002. Patriot ownership had financial problems and the team folded at the all-star break. Coincidentally, Celebrity Entertainer Jonathan Aldridge was called in to play outfield, but ended up playing 2 games at SS, thus, never receiving a paycheck or reimbursement for his travel expenses. - Source: Wikipedia
