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....

RockCats selling tickets at 50% off for Home Opener...

via Groupon (see below offer that landed in my email box). Not the first time NB has deeply discounted tickets; last season they were offering 50% in the New London Day. I guess there's a couple of ways at looking at this. First the RockCats are embracing social media has a ticket selling outlet and are using the discount as a loss leader for additional sales in better weather. Second, ticket sales are slow for the opener and this is one way of pumping it up...
Wondering if the Tigers will go this route...

"Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two field-box tickets to the home opener for the New Britain Rock Cats, as they play the Portland Sea Dogs at New Britain Stadium on Thursday, April 14 at 6:05 p.m."

And in other news Daryl Maday is the opening day pitcher for Richmond as the Eastern League begins play today.

Wow, how some ex Defs have not progressed! In addition to Maday, Osiris Matos, Dave Quinowski, Ronnie Ray Sharlon Schoop, & Mike McBryde are in Richmond. And they'll be managed by good old Dave Mac. Now I'm no longer sure I miss the team.

TI has signed with Fresno. Pill & Bond there too. Didn't study the Fresno roster in depth.

EME is with the Jacksonn Generals, the Mariners AA club in the Souther League.

According to SF Dugout, Crawford & Adrianza on DL. Crawford a broken finger, Adrianza ????. Crawford expected to join Fresno when he comes off DL.

Noonan ???? Sort of remember reading somewhere he is on DL too. I'd look for him to show up in Richmond or Fresno eventually.

Peguero out with a knee issue. Expects to be in Richmond in a couple of weeks. Noonan, strained oblique. Out 2 to 4 wks. No mention of where he'll end up.
