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....

Tigers jam Jamestown 6-0 behind the pitching...

of NYPL All-Star selected Brennan Smith and an explosive Tiger line up. Smith went 7 innings pitched allowing just three hits and striking out 5 as he improves to 2-3 while lowing his ERA to an impressive 2.10.
The Tigers lineup broke out the bats tonight lead by the Tigers other All-Star selection Dean Green who hit two homers, a solo shot and a two run homer to pace the CT attack. Green now has 6 homers on the season and is batting .366. Eugenio Suarz and Tyler Collins each went 2 for 4 with a double, with Collins driving in two runs and Suarz one. Chad Wright also went 2 for 4 with a double.
CT improves their record to 23-28 as they try to chase down Vermont for the division lead.

Misc fan notes: Great to be back at Dodd! Good catching up with GM Andrew Weber as he caught me up with the latest news and the great scuucess of Al Kaline Day earlier thise week. The Norwich Navigators tribute night on August 27th sounds special!

great success of al kaline day? the autograph signing was a joke and the only reason there so soo many people there was to meet Mr. kaline, of which most did not. The GM gave away more tickets than I've ever seen, just to keep the crowd from going crazy.
