Bobby Hill Interview: If you missed Scott Stanchak’s cant-miss interview with Newark Bears 2B Bobby Hill yesterday, make sure you go here to check that out. Good stuff.
Also a late addition to the site yesterday were two new signings by the Camden Riversharks.
The Bears Other Bobby: You can’t help but to be happy for former Newark Bears P Bobby Brownlie, who combined with four other Washington Nationals pitchers in a shutout of Georgetown University yesterday.
The former Rutgers standout and Cubs draft pick pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning, the only one of the five pitchers who didn’t allow a baserunner.
Daneker Assigned To Staten Island: A while back, we reported that former Atlantic League P Pat Daneker had been brought in by the New York Yankees organization. Yesterday, the Yankees assigned Daneker to be the pitching coach for their Staten Island affiliate in the short season A-Ball New York-Penn League. – Mike Ashmore
Welcome To New York Mr. Santana: Former Long Island Ducks outfielder Juan Gonzalez welcomed pitcher Johan Santana, who was making his first start, to the Mets today. Gonzalez homered and finished with three RBI. (Note: I caught some of the telecast and saw former Patriots catcher Robby Cancel running the bases after the game. He looks good. I see him in Triple-A with them to start the year.) – Scott Stanchak

The new poll is only up for a week because we’ll try and get the interview with the player you would like to most see on here.
