A Look at the 2010 St. Joe Mustangs   Leave a comment

Many of the 2010 St. Joe Mustangs have moved on and a few have returned. The team had a high return rate from the 2009 team but brought back fewer players this year. Of the 29 players on Mustangs roster, only 8 players were previously Mustangs. Of those 8, only 4 were members of the inaugural season of 2009. Those 3 players are Ben Baker, Brent Seifert, Drew Garwood and Landinn Eckhart. Eckhart played in 2009 but not in 2010 when he was Matt Johnson’s bullpen coach.

In 2010 I didn’t have a blog to put up Mustangs pictures and summaries but I did do a custom baseball card project with the Mustangs players. These never got posted during that season but I will post some now as a look back at the 2010 Mustangs. I am planning on doing another set for the 2011 season so as soon as I decide on a design for the cards I will begin to post them, most likely with my game summaries.

For the 2010 Mustangs custom card set I decided on the 1980 Topps baseball card design. I ended up with an 18 card set, I will post them all but here are a couple of them in honor of the Mustangs starting their official season this Wednesday at Nevada. I chose to do the 3 players that are entering their 3rd season playing for the team; Ben Baker, Brent Seifert and Drew Garwood. Most of the pictures I took myself but there were a couple I didn’t, Drew Garwood’s picture below was not taken by me, it was posted on the Mustangs facebook page and I wanted to include the local favorite in my set so I used the picture. I would be glad to give credit if anybody can direct me on who to give credit to.
