    Only semi-Yankees related…because Newark used to be a Yankees farm team…but, I thought it was worth sharing…it being a local baseball thing…

    The Newark Bears may be closing up shop. Click here to read the story.

    Strange…just a coincidence…but, my daughter is wearing a Newark Bears shirt today. Talk about timing! (For the record, she decided to wear the shirt this morning and I just saw this story now – at 2 pm.)

    I’m not shocked to hear this news – but, it’s a bummer, nonetheless.

      A shame, but as stated not totally unexpected. I have yet to make it to a game, but I’ve been by the area.

      “I’ve been in the area”. Yankee stadium is in the middle of the bronx and I’m sure you’ve been there. I went to Rutgers in Newark and I played for the Bears for 4 years and this is one of the main reasons why the Bears are in a tough spot. STEREOTYPES! There is a city rail that drops you off 80 feet away from the stadium….80 FEET. And for the years I’ve played there nothing ever happened to anyone within those 80 feet. The Newark Bears had a fan club which included 2 70 year old women. They never missed a game, and nothing ever happened to them. There are big cities all over the world that have bad areas and what normal people do is a little research see where the bad areas are and stay away. Between the first front office damiging it’s relationships with every small business in the area and people that are scared of there own shadow never mind being scared of taking a trip to a well secured stadium in Newark, that’s why the Bears are in a tough spot.
