With the 2015 spring season in the rear view mirror, the San Antonio Scorpions will be looking to make a run at the fall season title to secure their spot in the Championship playoffs in November. The spring did not unfold how the Alamo City faithful had intended, but did pan out like this writer said was highly likely; “My prediction is that San Antonio comes out in the middle for the Spring season. We will continue to build chemistry but won’t win it.” There is nothing the Scorpions can do about the spring now, and lamenting on it doesn’t do any good. So, we look to the fall…
Going into the fall season…

It was a World Cup environment on a smaller scale, and another reminder of the impact big-time sports can have on a community.
