Morning Roundup – Friday May 18th

  • The Devil Rays took it into Extra Innings for the second time in three games. But they pulled out the win over the Texas Rangers. This completes the first three regular season MLB games held at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. Except for the first night it sounds like the attendance was a success. Hopefully they’ll return again next year.
  • The fight to keep the Anaheim Resort area for tourism based businesses instead of housing projects has elevated tempers across town.
  • Disney World Cast Members who belong to the Unite HERE union coalition head to the polls to vote on a new contract. Disney has contracted with outside bus drivers to shuttle cast members to the polling booths since the union that represents the regular bus drivers opposes the current contract.
