Default Really reaching on Minor League BB

A friend of mine gave me this Appy League yesterday. She found it in her deceased husband's things and knew I am a baseball guy. I thought if I could ID any of the signatures I might be able to place it to a year and team. Can anyone ID any of these sigs? Thanks.

I see Mike Yancy. He was in the Mets chain at the end of the 90s/early 2000s. That's a start I guess.

Roberto Lugo played with him on the Port St Lucie Rookie League team in 1998 and in the Appalachian League in 1999.

It's one of those two teams. Here is Yancy at BBR

1999 Kingsport Mets. Rookie ball. Rudy de la Cruz clinches it.

EDIT: You already had the App League part. Not sure how I overlooked that. \_(ツ)_/ Anyway that's the team.

Wow, thanks a lot guys. I thought it might be a Kingsport Mets ball as I live in Kingsport. I sure appreciate all your inputs. You are the best. I will know have to look in my non-Cubs stuff and maybe put a sked or something with it. Even though a Cubs guy, I like baseball and go to Kingsport Mets games. Thanks again for all your help.

Ronald Acuna Sr. played for that team too. His son is Ronald Acuna Jr. current up and coming star of the Braves.
