It’s time for another installment on the blog here from Curve, Pa. and its almost hard to believe that the first month of 2012 is nearly at an end.
As some of you might or might not have heard by now, we’ll be making an announcement on Tuesday in conjunction with Peoples Natural Gas concerning the naming rights here at the ballpark. Check back to AltoonaCurve.com following the announcement Tuesday morning for the latest information on what’s in store for 2012.
In other ballpark related news, BCB was selected by StadiumJourney.com as having the 15th-best stadium experience in Minor League Baseball and the 92nd-best stadium in their Top-100 stadiums of 2011. We’re glad to see that the people from Stadium Journey got to experience the tremendous facility that all the folks here in Curve, Pa. get to experience on a daily basis!

On to former or possible future player news from this week, the MLB Network aired its Top-5o prospects show on Wednesday night at 10 p.m. and a member of the 2011 Curve found his way on to that list. Eastern League Rookie of the Year Starling Marte was tabbed as the 40th-best prospect in the MLB by the network and was one of three Pirates to make the Top-50. Who were the others? It should come as no surprise that 2010 first-round pick Jameson Taillon checked in at No. 8 while Gerrit Cole, the first-overall pick from the 2011 draft, was named the 11th-best prospect.
