Just when we thought the end had come for this venerable old ballpark, it has suddenly received new life. In 2008, the South Coast League will place an independent team within Smith Wills' friendly confines. The news means that this forgotten Double-A Ballpark will be allowed to prove one last time that it deserves professional baseball. We wish the South Coast League luck and thank them for giving Smith Wills Stadium life once again. We'll be following the team closely.
