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....

In today's Day:

" Connecticut and Reading play a doubleheader (two seven-inning games) today at 5:05 p.m. Daryl Maday (6-5, 3.92 ERA) starts Game One, and Decker said one of a couple of relievers on their way up from Augusta (likely lefty Steve Calicutt) will start Game Two. … Madison Bumgarner (9-1, 1.95 ERA) starts Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Decker said he will only pitch a few innings, as he will most likely start the first playoff game at Dodd Stadium since 2002 on Wednesday at 6:35 p.m. … New Britain beat Trenton 8-7 to move two games up on the Thunder for second place and the final playoff spot in the North. The Defenders will play the second-place team in the Northern Division in the first round of the playoffs."

Bullpen relief is really needed. Calicutt pitched for the team a month or so ago on the road but did not appear at Dodd before being sent back to Augusta.
