Adam Lorber Q&A Tomorrow at 4: Make sure you’re here at 4PM tomorrow, when Camden Riversharks GM Adam Lorber stops by for a Q&A. Keep sending your questions to mashmore@patriotsbaseball.com

Lorber’s Riversharks have a new manager and pitching coach this year, and it sounds like you’re going to see a bunch of new players there this season as well.

It’s not often you get the chance to talk to a GM of a baseball team, so make sure you take advantage.

Murray Named Barnstormers Hitting Coach: According to Jason Guarente, The Lancaster Barnstormers have named AL icon Glenn Murray as their new hitting coach.

Murray, the former Philadelphia Phillie who played for the Nashua Pride in the Atlantic League, is the league’s all-time home run leader and is in the top five in quite a few significant offensive categories.

Be A Bear: (PR) NEWARK , NJ – January 29, 2007 – The Newark Bears Professional Baseball Club have announced they will hold open tryouts at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium on Saturday, March 31 at 9:00 am. The admission fee for the open tryout is $40.

First year Bears Manager and former major league infielder Wayne Krenchicki will be on hand to evaluate the players at the ballpark along with Bears General Manager John Brandt.
