The Wilmington Blue Rocks are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Founded in 1993, they have been part of the Kansas City Royals organization as a Class A Advanced minor league team. For those interested, here is the link: http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t426
My friend and I went to today’s game. While the Blue Rocks lost 8-7 against the Potomac Nationals, it was a fun event to attend, with excellent baseball weather. Tomorrow I head back home to the normal routine after a wonderful weekend.
The start of Spring is nearly upon us. That means beautiful weather, being out doors and of course baseball!
The Long Island Ducks opened the ticket booths on Saturday March 18 2017. The tickets are now available to the public.
I purchased my ticket for opening day on April 28, 2017. Game time starts at 6:35 p.m.
The roar of the crowd, the thrill and chills of each player batting or fielding, the smell of the ball park. The sights and sounds are quite an experience. I cannot explain the fascination and love of the game, it just gets in a persons blood, it becomes part of them from a young age. It is something that is better explained by encounter with the game. This is what makes it great and part of The American Dream.

The cold weather reared its ugly head, as people filed into Bethpage Ball Park for the Long Island Ducks Annual Job Fair. A friendly staff greeted potential candidates with a warm smile and cheerful greeting.
This candidate was the second to be interviewed of the possible 50 folks that had shown up early and present their best for the many positions available. It looked very hopeful at the interview. The person I spoke with remembered me from attending many games during the last few years. He mentioned there is a very good chance I was going to be hired and he would put my application at the top of the pile to the person he was passing the information to.
Getting this position would be wonderful for two reasons. The first being I could always use the extra money and second job. The second is that I would really like to work for this baseball club. Baseball for me is part of the American Dream, as sweet as apple pie and working for an organization with a winning attitude and 3 championship titles and eleven division berths.
The warmth felt this morning took the bitter chill out of my bones.
For those of you who enjoy following baseball, and teams in The Atlantic League of American Baseball Players, I thought many of you would enjoy this post.
