Navarrete To The Road: After his release from the Mets organization, former Patriots INF Ray Navarrete is reportedly close to an agreement with the Road Warriors. Navarrete played with Chris Eickhorst last season, and the two spoke about the idea of bringing Ray to the road.

Also, according to a source, P Rob Corrado has been assigned to the Road Warriors. It was a move that Corrado was not very happy with.

Buckley To Somerset: Former Boston Red Sox prospect C Jim Buckley has signed with the Somerset Patriots and has been activated for tonight’s game. He is playing tonight

This leaves Somerset with four catchers, something I suspect won’t last very long.

Anyway, Buckley played in nine games with the Pawtucket Red Sox this season, but was released earlier this month after spending more than two months on the disabled list with a calf injury.

Hake To Have Surgery: Lancaster Barnstormers INF Travis Hake is set to have elbow surgery to remove some bone chips. He is expected to be out for a few weeks, and should be able to return in time for the playoffs. – Mike Ashmore

Your Help: As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve noticed, as of late, that our servers have been going a lot slower with the large amount of hits we’ve begun receiving. I have to upgrade them, so I’m asking for your help. The ad at the very top of the page will help us pay for the new fixes if you click on it at least once every visit — thanks Google. Thank you for your help in advance.

Former A.L.er Murray Retires: The Nashua Pride are no longer in the Atlantic League, but it’s worth noting this story because of this guy being a former All-Star and terrific player. Pride power-source Glenn Murray has retired from baseball; no word on his future plans, but we wish him the best. – Scott Stanchak.

Interesting Podcast: I received an email a few weeks ago from former Somerset Patriot Ken Arnold telling me about his new baseball podcast. I checked it out and it was quite interesting. You can hear it yourself at HighandInside.net. – Scott Stanchak

2. Scott Stanchak - July 27, 2006

Again, thanks for helping out by clicking out on the ad. It’s helping out more than you know. – Scott.

Scott – how far away from Bridgewater is that restaurant? When wife and I come up for the Aug 18th series vs. Surf we might like to try it out….

To anonymous:
Bridgeport played a 10:35am game yesterday, and the place was packed. Lots of campers and youngsters, in fact friends of ours who came over on the ferry had to purchase standing room only tickets. It was a nice day for a day game.

wow. a mid-morning game is definitely appealing to spectators!!!

6. Scott Stanchak - July 27, 2006

The restaurant is about 10 minutes, 15 tops. Don’t know exact directions, but it’s a good place and was one of the first non-smoke bars in the state, way before the ban was put into place. The ad will take you to directions. If you go, tell them Scott Stanchak sent you.

Camden always has great attendance on “Camp Days” as well. It’s a great field trip for kids & it is definitely hard to find a seat!

8. Chuckerd58 - July 28, 2006

Hey guys,new to the site,i have been looking for a site on the AL for a couple of months,and i found yours by accident.I am Ducks fan from L.I.,but i find the whole league to be cool.Anyway,i hope to contribute some comments as i go along.

camden in rain delay… pats up 1-0. Rad hit a double, burt performed a sac bunt, sandel hit a single to bring him in.

10. riggzy - July 28, 2006

Whats killed bpt attendance this year have been mon-wed nights the avg bout 2000 fans those nights
but kids days and the weekends they do alot better..i’ll be there saturday for the moto cross show before the game…that should be a good draw..

11. AtlanticLeagueBaseball.com - July 28, 2006

This may sound sarcastic, but I’m serious…

What’s been the problem in Bridgeport that’s led to poor attendance in previous years?


12. Scott Stanchak - July 28, 2006

Welcome to the site, chuckerd58.

13. riggzy - July 28, 2006

elaborate i’m not to bright

the poor attn in bpt is rush hour traffic is brutal.if you work down county a 15-20 mile ride takes 45-90 to make.i get out of work at 5 or 5:30 its 6:30 by the time i get home.a 7:00 game is impossible to make on time.the other reason for poor attn is that bpt is not a baseball city,basketball by far dominates bpt.so you dont get the walk up attn from the city residents that you should from a city of a 130,000 people.its a joke.
b-fish fan

15. Riggzy - July 28, 2006

I agree with about 60% of what u said b-fish fan…traffic is brutal no doubt thats a big reason why attendance suffers…but i don’t think basketball is far dominate than baseball i believe maybe more people in general like basketball over baseball but dominate..its really not fair to compare the 2 theres no pro hoops here or uconn in bpt to compare the 2 although if uconn played in bpt it would sell out every time so there would be no talk of what is more popular …put a CBA team in bpt and see how it does…by the way is that league still around..lol…

16. riggzy - July 28, 2006

Personally i don’t even think there attendance is that bad..its about what expect being from the area…about 1/2 full or little better during the week and pretty full on the weekend…i guess there doin alright..i have every saturday home game and sat night are decent crowd they don’t fill every seat but they get a good crowd…do the teams ever come foward saying what there profits and loses are for the year?…how many fans do you have to put in the seats to make money..i know they do alot of business on the concessions…another thing is this..i wish an advertiser would buy rights to the stadium so the club doen’t have to worry about paying for lights or up keep on the place and the taxes…it would benefit them…but who’s gonna do that(pipedream)

17. SharkGirl - July 28, 2006

Hey Mike, glad you made it to Camden & it was great to finally meet you! I’m thrilled you were impressed by Campbell’s Field-the view of the bridge on a summer night with a breeze off the Delaware is so inviting. Although, there was a little more than just a breeze tonight…lol (90 min. rain delay). And yay for free baseball-kudos to mgmnt. for honoring tonight’s tix for another game even though the game was eventually played & complete. Just a nice thing to do for the fans who had to wait a long time for the game to start up again. Keep up the great work on the site Mike & I hope to see you again!

Everyday I look in the paper (USA Today, Washington Post, etc) and enjoy glancing over the Transactions. I’ve noticed that the Golden Baseball League, Can Am League, Frontier League, and the American Association always are listed and have a few transactions. The Atlantic League only appears once or twice a week. But thanks to Scott and Mike, I know that there are WAY MORE transactions than this. How come the AL doesn’t put them on the wire????

20. Anonymous - July 28, 2006

the ducks site says they signed navarrete…

21. Chuckerd58 - July 29, 2006

It does seem hard to find all the A.L. transactions. I still can’t find where Jimmy Goelz of the Ducks disapeared.

22. AtlanticLeagueBaseball.com - July 29, 2006

Road Warriors.

23. AtlanticLeagueBaseball.com - July 30, 2006

Wait, that’s Bryan Goelz. Jimmy retired to become a firefighter.

24. Chuckerd58 - July 30, 2006

Thanks for the info on Goelz. I guess that makes sense.
