    Last night, I saw the Somerset Patriots host the Bridgeport Bluefish. The Pats won by a score of 6-3

    Bill Pulsipher got the win for the Patriots – allowing just one run on one hit during his 6 2/3 innings on the mound. Yes, it was that Bill Pulsipher.  Hey, give the guy credit for hanging in there.

    Former Yankees farmhand Willie Upshaw is the manager of the Bluefish. And, former Yankees Angel Berroa plays for him – but was not in the game last night.

    Former 1999 National League Rookie of the Year Scott Williamson closed out the game for Somerset.  Yes, it was that Scott Williamson who saved three games for the Red Sox against the Yankees in the fabled 2003 ALCS.  Another, hey, give the guy credit for hanging in there.

    Of course, when you see the Pats play, you’re always going to see Jeff Nettles and Sparky Lyle.

    My buddies and I sat in the third row, behind home plate.  The tickets were $10.50 each.  We bought them 15 minutes before the game started at the box office.  Oh, and, the cost for parking was $2.

    If you’re ever in the area, I suggest heading over to TD Bank Ballpark and checking out a game there. I’ve been doing it for years now. (It’s been at least ten years – maybe twelve?) It’s a fun baseball time, with major league ties, at a cost nowhere near what it is in the big leagues.

      I’ve been meaning to check out a game there, I happened to discover TD Bank Ballpark on the way to TN last year.

      The thing that surprised me about Pulse is how big he has gotten. I saw him pitch winter ball a couple of years ago, and he was built more like David Wells.

      Still looks better right now than Pedro Feliciano. :-)
