The 2014 season brought the Charlotte Knights back to uptown Charlotte with the skyline a perfect backdrop. The team's inaugural season at BB&T BallPark featured 31 sellouts in 71 games, welcoming 687,715 fans through the gates, leading all of Minor League Baseball.

The Chicago White Sox promoted seven players on Tuesday as part of the team's September call-ups.

UNC coach Larry Fedora did something different on Monday, though, and said, basically, that Marquise Williams is the team’s firm starter. Williams, a fourth-year junior, started on Saturday against Liberty. He accounted for four touchdowns – two passing and two running – but also threw two interceptions during the Tar Heels’ 56-29 victory against the Flames.

On Monday, the Knights – who did not qualify for postseason play – wrapped up their final game at the stadium in Charlotte this season, a 9-2 loss to the Gwinnett Braves, in front of 9,540.
