The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Player will start their season this week. The Long Island Ducks are in York Pennsylvania playing against York Revolution, during the weekend.
The Long Island Ducks are in their 20th season and will have a season long celebration. Many players in the Atlantic League and the Long Island Ducks have either played in Major League Baseball or have had contracts with Major League teams over the years. It’s been a wonderful twenty years for them. They have 12 playoff berths, 7 division (Liberty) titles and 3 Atlantic League Championships. In 2018 they won the Liberty Division Title, Championship winners in 2004, 2012 and 2013.
In 2018 they hosted the 2018 Allstar Game. That was very exciting! It was quite a battle. The Liberty Division beat the Freedom Division 4-3, with Somerset Patriots infielder Alfredo Rodriguez lifting the Liberty Division to the win. He was named the All-Star MVP. This year should prove to be more exciting as many spectacular events are planned to celebrate the Twentieth Year!
The Long Island Ducks will have their home opener on May 3, 2019.
I created this image last year and had thought it fit the situation. The actual design was based on the poet Audrey Michelle, whose intelligent prose and words of wisdom have inspired me to create other works for her, specifically her poetry.
