The Northern League's version of the Yankees the Winnipeg Goldeyes, visit the T-Bones tonight at Community America Ballpark (1800 Village West Parkway in Kansas City, Kansas, 913-328-5600). Like the team in the Bronx, the Goldeyes have been around for a while (since 1994, which is an eternity for an indie-league club) and play in a substantially larger market than their peers (Winnipeg leads the league in attendance). The Goldeyes are led by Brent Metheny, a slugging third baseman who spent time in the Chicago White Sox camp this past spring. The T-Bones counter with mashing outfielder Brad Correll, who hit four home runs in a California League game. Tonight's game begins at 7:10.
