The Rochester Red Wings say they are disappointed over the comments from the new manager of the Batavia Muckdogs that the previous management left the field and the front office at Dwyer Stadium in a mess.
Naomi Silver, President of the Red Wings, operated the Muckdogs for the past 10 years. Without their involvement, most local baseball observers believe the team would have folded a decade ago.
She said Major league Baseball inspected the field a year ago and found nothing wrong. She said the Red Wings only took office furnishings that belonged to them.
Dave Chase, the man brought in by the NYP league to run the Muckdogs this year, said Friday the field was not up to professional standards.

It’s the traditional day in which Christ’s resurrection is celebrated. Christians believe God sacrificed his only son so their sins would be forgiven. Unlike Christmas, Easter isn’t celebrated on a fixed day. Instead, Easter falls on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox. That could be anywhere from March 22nd until the end of April in a given year.
