Castro Possibly Out For Season: According to York beat writer Jim Seip’s blog, Bears INF Ramon Castro may be lost for the season, the result of bone spurs damaging his Achilles tendon.

“I’d be willing to bet he’s done for the year,” Krenchicki told Seip.

That’s a bet the Bears may want to take, as Castro was hitting .368 with two home runs and 15 RBI in his first 38 games. His .945 OPS led the team.

It Must Be Father’s Day: Because Jeff Nettles and Pete Rose, Jr. features can be found here and here, respectively.

The Rose feature is particularly interesting in that it features quotes from his father.

He’d be a dream interview for me, if nothing else. Say what you want about the man, but he’s one of the greatest players baseball has ever seen. Fathers should teach their kids to play like Pete did, he earned his “Charlie Hustle” moniker.

As for Nettles, I’ll have a feature coming out this week in which he’ll be, ummm…featured among his teammates for pre-game routines and superstitions and all that.

Newark 6 @ York 9: A sellout crowd of 4,364 (??) saw the Revolution pick up their first ever win at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

Jason Olson got the win for the Revs, throwing 3.2 shutout innings in relief of former Cubs starter Steve Smyth, who gave up five runs in just 2.1 innings.

Road Warriors 6 @ Somerset 12: 7,275 fans — many of whom waited in a ridiculously long line for Graig and Jeff Nettles to sign their dual bobblehead dolls — packed Somerset’s Commerce Bank Ballpark and walked away happy, as the Patriots beat the Road Warriors, 12-6, on the strength of an eight-run fourth inning.

Every Somerset starter got a hit, with Alan Zinter and Jason Romano each going deep for the Patriots in the victory.

Danny Garcia swiped his league leading 24th base as well.

Ducks 7 @ Riversharks 6: Dwight Maness’ three-run homer wasn’t enough, as the Riversharks couldn’t quite get past the Ducks, losing 7-6.

4-5-6 hitters Pete Rose, Jr., Kevin Haverbusch and Damian Rolls combined for seven of Long Island’s 13 hits, 11 of which came off of ‘Sharks starter Greg Powell, who fell to 3-3 on the season.

Bluefish 3 @ Barnstormers 1 (Game One): Bluefish starter Matt Beech was two outs away from throwing just the fifth no-hitter in Atlantic League history, but Jutt Hileman’s solo home run broke it up. Lincoln Mikkelsen is still the only player to fire a no-hitter at Lancaster’s Clipper Magazine Stadium.

Bluefish 5 @ Barnstormers 9 (Game Two): James Lira rebounded from an ugly outing in Somerset and returned to form as a starter, getting the nod in game two of the twinbill.

He went 5.1 innings and got the win, his longest outing since June 4, 2003 — when he was with Double-A Round Rock.

First off, get some rest. Only I’m allowed to be up at 2 in the morning giving a crap about the Atlantic League.

At least I don’t have to be at the ballpark at 11:30 this morning. Oh wait…

The immediate answer to your questions are I have absolutely no idea on either one — but I’m sure I can probably find out. Your best bet on stuff like this is to actually find me at the ballpark before a game or something — it’s a lot easier for me to figure something like this out during one of the numerous times during the day when I have nothing to do.

It was a really nice turnout last night, though. A legit 7,000 fans, most of them wearing blue for who knows what reason. The Graig/Jeff Nettles bobbleheads were pretty sweet, and the line to get autographs for them was impressive.

I believe that lower “sell out” total from York was due to a few different factors. I was at both games and they jumped out at me right away. On opening night there were temporary skybox tents set up on the concourse area near the big left field wall (which I think they should call the “great wall of York” or great wall for short, but that’s just me) and they also had a large group in the yet to be finished picnic area on opening night. Without those extras, some of whom spilled out into the centerfield seating area, they were going to get a lower number for Saturday.

Everything was great at both games, though. Even though I’ve only been to Camden, Lancaster, Newark, Atlantic City and Somerset, I’m going to go out on a limb and say this will be one of the finest stadiums the Atlantic league has ever had. When it’s 100% that is.

The reason for all the blue shirts is becasue all those people where people that work for sanfi aventis and with their families whom sponsoring the game.

I agree, once finished the York Stadium will be top notch. It is still not that bad right now. I was actually impressed with how nice they made it seem. The colorful barriers with the players pictures on them blocking your view of the construction area on the wall up to the stadium was cool. The Downtown playground was neat for the kids, the food situation wasn’t bad. All in due time. Its better than having to wait till next year without ANY baseball this summer.
