Last year before the St. Louis Ambush kicked off for their first season after their re-birth, they announced the signing of former KC Wizards midfielder, Jamar Beasley. At the time I thought that was a good signing for the expansion club, giving them an experienced player to build the team around. But once the season started, Beasley was no where to be seen. He didn't play for the Ambush at all. There was never an official announcement from the club as to what happened, but Beasley never did play for them. Then this past week, the Ambush announced that they'd once again signed Beasley. When I first saw it, my reaction was wondering if it was just a re-posting of last year's signing by mistake. But it appears that Beasley has been signed by St. Louis again.
Here's the rest of this week's update.
