Ask The New Guy: Matt Hirsh will get the nod for the York Revolution in Somerset tomorrow night, and hopefully he’s earned a few new fans from our “Ask The New Guy” segment, which is now prominently featured on his Brothers in Arms website.
We’ll have a new question and answer up tomorrow, and your question can be next. You can e-mail your question to email@example.com, or ask me at the ballpark…which is actually how our next question was submitted.
To find out how the website got started, which Matt shares with his big league brother, Jason, check out this article in today’s Rocky Mountain News.
Southern Maryland Has Crabs!: The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs unveiled their logo today, and you can check it out here. The Blue Crabs are scheduled to start play in 2008. – MA
Redman Turns Red: Former York Revolution stud Tike Redman made news today for being the man that pitcher Kenny Rogers — not the singer or chicken restaurant owner — picked off in a rehab stint with the Detroit Tigers Triple-A team.
In related news, Redman never called me back. I still can’t put together Tike Redman and the classical music that plays as his ring-back tone. – Scott Stanchak
(I best remember Rogers as being the first guy to flat out turn me down for an interview back in 2005 – MA)
Espada Gets 1,000th Hit: Congrats to Atlantic League veteran INF Angel Espada, who recorded his 1,000th career hit yesterday.
“It’s not bad for a small kid from Salinas that wasn’t supposed play more than one year in professional baseball,” Espada said in a team release.
“I’m still doing it so I guess I have proven a lot of people wrong. They doubted my ability. They doubted my talent. But I always believed in myself and the things I could do.” -MA
