On Wednesday, May 27 at 12:30 p.m., the Birmingham Barons, currently 21-24 in the Southern League (AA-level minors), will host the last-place Jacksonville Suns.

Did any sentimental considerations sway my decision to invest in Jersey Boys? Well, every summer as a kid, I played at the Jersey Shore. When I first met Frankie Valli, I told him that whenever I hear him sing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" I still recall the summery coconut scent of Coppertone wafting across the boardwalk.
