The official newsletter of the Santa Barbara Outlaws
After seven seasons playing in Santa Barbara’s Oceanfront
Stadium, the Outlaws will open the 2002 season in a new home.
On April 1st, 2002, the Outlaws will play their home opener in
Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. The
Outlaws will need to promote good pitching and defense instead of waiting for Mo
Vaughn's three-run homer.
1. The Outlaws traded Tim Salmon (2,B4-$12.5M) to Box City for the Parcelmen’s third round pick.
2. The Outlaws traded Rey Ordonez (1,B4-$5M) to Gem City for Adam Kennedy (2,A2).
3. The Outlaws traded Chin-Feng Chen (AM) to Metropolis to trade up to the first overall pick in the 2002 draft. With the first overall pick, the Outlaws selected shortstop Juan Uribe from Colorado.
Recent Spring Training Injuries:
1. Wilson Alvarez is recovering from liposuction and will miss the entire season.
2. Mo Vaughn is recovering from a torn biceps muscle and will miss the entire season.
