Sovereign Bank Stadium
I'll be following the series on the BLUEFISH Website
The Bridgeport Bluefish was the first Atlantic League team, and game, I ever attended; some eight or nine years ago. One day I was in dire need of a road trip. I looked for a place that was sufficiently far enough away from the city to satisfy my need for a good drive and a ballgame. I remember time being of the essence and deciding upon Bridgeport. That game started my appreciation for the Atlantic League and it's member teams. The rest is, as they say, a matter of baseball record.
I am a Newark Bears fan first and a Long Island Ducks fan second. That goes strictly according to proximity with me in Brooklyn; naturally. My son, whom accompanies me every so often when the urge strikes has developed a yen for the Somerset Patriots.
I have visited all but two parks/teams at current. YORK and South Maryland hopefully will get a visit from me next season. Last season, Lancaster and the Barnstormers provided me with a weekend well spent.
The truth is my whole Atlantic League experience has been enjoyable since day one.
I have a team in my backyard here in Brooklyn, a team in Staten Island and two bigger clubs in the Bronx and Queens. I frequent them all. Still, I enjoy leaving the city for a "local game". The call of the Atlantic League is strong with me; and I listen........, gladly.
Good luck to both
the YORK REVOLUTION and the BRIDGEPORT BLUEFISH
during this year's Championship Series.
