It's a name change that the Shreveport Sports hope will fill a few seats — at least a few more than last year when the team had the lowest attendance in the league.
Also under new management, the Shreveport-Bossier Captains hope the new name will bring back some old fans with warm memories of the past.
In my younger years, Captains games were the ultimate way to spend a summer night. I would go to games with my church softball team, eat hot dogs and helmet bowls filled with soft-serve ice cream that melted before it hit your lips.
I hope the changes revive the local club, and bring in fans — old and new.
