Ice Breaker – Minor League Baseball


After short break, the Stretched Ice Breaker is back!

Most weeks on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question on Fridays. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at jon@jonstolpe.com.  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

In the past few weeks, I’ve gone to two minor league baseball games.  In the first game, I saw the Reading Fightin Phils host the Trenton Thunder.  The Fightin Phils are the AA team associated with the Philadelphia Phillies.  And earlier this week, I saw the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs host the Norfolk Tides.  The Iron Pigs are the AAA team associated with the Philadelphia Phillies.  Both games were exciting, and the home team won both games.  I like minor league baseball games, because they are reasonably priced and they take you back to the way baseball was meant to be played and watched.  This week’s Stretched Ice Breaker is inspired by my recent minor league adventures.

Question:  If there were a minor league baseball team in your hometown, what do you think the team name would be?

My Answer:  I live in a town called Schwenksville.  Schwenksville is a small town in the northwest suburbs of Philadelphia.  It’s the home of the Philadelphia Folk Festival and the Pennypacker Mansion.  The Perkiomen Trail and Perkiomen River runs right through town.  If there was a minor league baseball team in town, it might be called the Schwenksville Super Perks.
