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....

best thing about the dinger was, that he tried really hard to keep his game face rounding the bases, but when he saw the guys in the duggout all excited, he couldnt stop from cracking a smile

craw was the one to tell him how historic his hr was, and who the last giant was to do it, and off of which pitcher (clark off of ryan...first pitch)

i like it when good things happen to good people

Wow, what a nice moment for a real nice guy. Thanks for the link Bacci.

I still swear one of his dingers at Dodd disappeared coming down in the trees in left field. Had to be 400+. Of course Greg, LC, & Joe P were all in abstentia. Maybe I'll meet someone down the road who was there and remembers it.

Unfortunately, we won't be there this weekend. Our younger son was drafted by the Mets in June, and he should be coming home any day. His team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, are in the playoffs and the games keep getting rained out. We were up in San Francisco the first weekend after Brett arrived. We were right in the front at Petco, but who would have thought he would hit one out?? Crazy, that's for sure. I can definitely give Brett a big hug from everyone! LOL Thanks to all for your support. Talk to you again soon!

oh duh,

totally forgot all about tyler

we had been talking about him on another blog during the draft, and how cool it would be for the giants to draft him (getting kinda thin in the pitching dept)

but giants went for more position players in the first two days

he should be fine in the mets org

cyclones play in a great stadium...good fan base

he will enjoy fl next season, except for the humidity

enjoy...im sure there will be many more opportunities for you to watch brett in person

now how cool would it be if a couple of years from now, tyler is facing brett in a game
