THE LONG ISLAND DUCKS AND SOMERSET PATRIOTS EACH TOOK THE FIRST GAME OF THEIR FIRST-ROUND PLAYOFF SERIES.

Rabouin Suffers Stroke: Tom King of The Nashua Telegraph reports that pitching coach Andre Rabouin suffered a mild stroke several hours prior to Saturday’s game. According to King, Rabouin temporarily lost peripheral vision while sitting in the manager’s office after batting practice, and was then taken to a local hospital where he stayed overnight.

“He’s all right,” Pride GM Todd Marlin told the paper. “We were very concerned, but we took him right to the emergency room. He says he feels fine. In a way, he snapped out of it real quick, for the most part.”

My best wishes go out to Andre. For as great of a job as Butch Hobson has done this year, you certainly can’t overlook the job Rabouin has done as well. King reports that he’s expected to be available for the playoffs, and I certainly hope that’s the case…it would be a shame if he wasn’t able to enjoy the postseason.

Brandt Out as Camden GM, In as Bears GM: Ryan Lawrence of The Camden Courier-Post reports that Camden Riversharks GM John Brandt is resigning his post to take the same position with the Newark Bears. It would seem safe to assume that current Bears GM Dean Rivera is then out as Bears GM, because…well, you just can’t have two GM’s. Good luck to both men in their new endeavours. – Mike Ashmore
