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....

THANK YOU!! CT Tigers front office....

for recognizing an important piece of Norwich baseball history, the Tater the Gator statue that stood in front of Dodd Stadium from 1995-2005. The Tater statue has been plucked from it's ignominious resting spot in the back corner of the old Dodd playground and is currently awaiting a much needed refurnishing.
I've mentioned the blight of the old statue in previous posts on 6/12/10 and April 27 of this year and I'm thrilled that the statue is coming back; this time in Tigers colors. In my mind's eye I'll always remember the purple and green color scheme (as pictured here) and the countless kids who had their pictures taken by it.
This is another great example of the CT Tigers front office extending themselves to the community. Many thanks!!
