The aging scoreboard at Sam Lynn Ballpark has been acting strangely the last few years, with numbers randomly appearing, flashing and jumping across the on the board sporadically. The ballpark's current tenant, the Bakersfield Train Robbers, are looking to raise money to replace it. Tim Wheeler, official scorekeeper at Sam Lynn the past 25 years says, ”It’s as if Sam Lynn’s ghost was trying to relay some sort of funky Morse code to the people in Bakersfield. Maybe, ‘help me’ or ‘replace me’ or ‘buy me a new one.’”

No, Sam Lynn ballpark needs a bulldozer. A city of half a million not having a decent venue is ridiculous.
