  1. Congrats on keeping the Scooter! To a question on your previous post. Moore Park pre-dates the New Deal is one of the first baseball fields in western pennsylvania of any kind. Funded by scotsmen. The stone steps are even older, unknown age and origin, ancient aliens shit. Believed to be build for religious purposes and/or time travel. Kenny Rayl told me about it when I visited him in the future. Records from the future suggest the Ducks hold the scooter for many consecutive decades.
