Some quick hitters on the BlueClaws, on and off the field.
- Yankees and Mets affiliates will be in town next week. Charleston, the Yankees affiliate, is in Monday through Thursday and Savannah, the Mets affiliate, is in Friday through Monday.
- Next Sunday, we’ll have the post-game pink jerseys, auctioned off live after the game. Anyone remember who brought in the most money in last year’s pink jersey auction?

- Next Thursday is Thirsty Thursday (and there will be a Toby Keith ticket raffle (June 19th at PNC Bank Arts Center).
- Then next Friday, the first Friday Happy Hour of the year, with 1/2 price drinks and live music from 6 – 7 pm in the WRAT Trap. Details on the music here.
And some baseball stuff…
- We mentioned the hitting streaks in the last post.
- Looking forward to seeing Colby Shreve pitch tonight. It’s the first pro start for the 2008 6th round pick. He had Tommy John Surgery in May of that year, and didn’t make his pro debut until Monday, when he gave up a home run to the first batter he faced. He was considered a 2nd round guy until he had the surgery, and the Phillies obviously were impressed enough to take him and wait two years.
- How about those Clearwater Threshers? In first place in the Florida State League. Here are their stats. Justin De Fratus, with Lakewood last year, has been closing for them.
- With Brad Lidge returning tomorrow night (he leads Clearwater in starts by the way), 2007 BlueClaws LHP Antonio Bastardo has been optioned to Lehigh Valley.
