Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

John Bowker's big MLBB debut (thanks lc!)

from AP:
"(John)Bowker, called up earlier in the day to start in right field, also singled in his first career at-bat. After his sixth-inning homer, Bowker received a curtain call and came back out of the dugout and tipped his cap to a standing ovation - the first time that's ever happened to him.

A Sacramento native with lots of friends and family in attendance, Bowker became the eighth San Francisco player to homer in his first major league game, joining the likes of Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda and the late Bobby Bonds. He got the ball from his base hit, too.

''That was awesome,'' he said. ''To get that hit out of the way and to hear the crowd was a plus.''

Congrats John! As Clay Timpner went back down to Fresno
