The Quincy Gems are preparing to hold five large fireworks displays after games conclude on June 30, July 1, 3, 8 and 15. As a result, their parking lot on Sycamore Street will not be available on those dates.
Sunday is the eve of the Major League Baseball Draft and hundreds of collegiate and high school baseball players around the country will go to bed that night as amateurs and wake up with anticipation of being selected Monday by a Major League franchise.

So there I was Wednesday night standing behind home plate, a position I was so familiar with some 35 years ago, waiting for one Dennis Oliver to deliver the opening pitch of the night at the Quincy Gems home opener. It brought back so many memories for me to be behind the plate once again.
When it comes to purchasing food, the United States leads the way in the safe distribution of food to the public. Safety measures are taken in packaging and delivery as well. It got me to thinking about the pioneer days when people didn't have the safeguards for storing foods like we have now.
The Quincy Gems home opener is slated for May 31 against the Danville Dans...which is ALSO Y101 Night at the Ballpark! As part of Y101 night, we want your youngster to be a part of the Y101 Opening Lineup.
We are now 3 weeks and a day away from the home opener for the Quincy Gems. On May 31st, the Gems will open up their home season with a game against the Danville Dans at historic Q.U. Stadium. It will also be Y101 Night at the ballpark as well. While the excitement of a brand new season will be felt in Quincy the disappointment cannot go unnoticed in Hannibal in that the Hannibal Cavemen will not be holding an opening night at historic Clemens Field this year.
It happens every year usually around the end of school when athletes realize that their athletic careers have abruptly ended with a season and career ending loss. At this time of year you can open up the Herald Whig and see it in the faces of the losing players.
