Stephens Media Group News Director Matt McClusky's book, 'The Bucks Started and Stopped Here,' now out in paperback
Posted by news on 11/17/2017 4:20:00 AM.
If you've ever wanted to be the general manager of a professional baseball team, full of dreams about assembling a championship-winning roster, then the low-ranking minors isn't the place for you.
 
It takes a special kind of crazy to try and make any kind of pro sports team work. That goes double for independent baseball teams trying to make a go of it in Smalltown, USA.
 
It was all sorts of crazy for the Watertown Bucks back in the summer of 2015. Playing in a city where baseball has a history dating back over 80 years, Watertown also has the stigma of being the place where the sport has gone to die. "The Bucks Started and Stopped Here: A wild ride inside the world of independent baseball" details the struggles of trying to overcome the past, overcome the long odds overwhelmingly stacked against, and get through the surreal drama of trying to bring baseball back to upstate New York.
