|Andy Tracy (#22) coaching third base as the manager of the Crosscutters in August 2012|
On August 18 Bacon and Biscuits headed out to Williamsport to see IronPigs legend Andy Tracy and his Crosscutters take on Jamestown in a game they won 7-3. Bowman Field is as old as its 1926 opening date would suggest. Unlike some other aging Minor League ballparks, it clearly has not been upgraded in any significant way for quite some time. The Cutters bullpen is outside a giant shed down the right field line which contains a batting cage. The outfield fence is literally a green wooden fence that looks like it may be the original one from '26.

As I said the Crosscutters won the game 7-3, but they would finish the season with a 30-46 record, the second worst in the New York-Penn League. Andy Tracy will not manage them in 2013 as he was named the new Phillies "roving" Minor League hitting coordinator back in November.
