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....

Friday, June 18, 2010


at last. The Tigers open on the road tonight at 7PM. Looks like you can listen to the game on line as well. Last season Brian was "taking calls" via AOL IM during the game...wondering if the same deal holds true this season.

Got the weekly EL press release the other day and the league will be disclosing the site of the 20102 EL All-Star Game soon. I'm still hoping the Tigers front office puts in a bid for the 2012 NYPL All-Star game to show off Dodd. For those of you who read this blog it's something I've called for before. It would be the 10th anniversary of the first time Dodd hosted an All-Star, the last true Double A All-Star Game that featured players from all three Double A leagues. It would also be the fifth anniversary of the infamous fogged out 2007 EL All-Star Game What do you say guys I'm? Go for it!!
Check out stories by Marc Allard and Joe Perez in today's Norwich Bulletin. Joe gives us a good idea of what the Tigers starters by postion will be.

Too bad about the Celtics last night....enjoyed World Cup action this morning in downtown Mystic at the Harp and Hound Pub just down the sidewalk from where I used to live some 30 years ago. Great atomosphere with a nice bunch of folks drinking way too early in the morning--just coffee (striaght) for me. USA needs to stop playing this come from behind stuff...instant replay on that third (disallowed) USA goal? Oh man.....Is it to late for the Tigers to throw together a little World Cup promo deal??
Subway Series round two starts tonight....Fantasy baseball teams doing well... US Open is's a great time!

I believe Mr. Eric Knighton, Assistant GM, will be broadcasting the games this season.
