"Sprey" hits and line drives
The Missoula Osprey are the Advanced Rookie Affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks which play in the Pioneer League of A baseball, that play in Missoula, Montana. The Osprey have been connected with the Major Leagues Diamondbacks since the 1996 season. Prior to that they had been affiliated with the San Francisco Giants from 1987-1989 and then co-affiliated from '89 to '96. The team plays their home games at Ogren Park at Allegiance Field which is a 3,500 seat stadium that was built prior to the 2004 season. The largest crowd however was recorded at 4,076 for a game in July of this year against The Great Falls Voyagers. The organization has captured 4 division championships ('98, '99, '06, '09), and 2 league titles ('99, '06). Some Osprey players of note in the past are Lyle Overbay, Jorge De La Rosa, Miguel Montero, Carlos Gonzalez, and Scott Hairston. The fitted shown has a black crown, black brim, and an Osprey Blue O outlined in gold, with an Osprey bird emerging. They are a little known team unless your a baseball junkie like myself, or you live in Montana; They definitely deserve some recognition for one of the cooler logos in baseball though.
