Next Friday Starts a Harper-stand

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Yes that is a lame title, but Bryce Harper, baseball’s top prospect and the #1 overall pick in the 2010 draft will be in Lakewood with Hagerstown for a four-game series beginning Friday night (yes, Friday the 13th).

It should be a very exciting weekend and the first chance for the Jersey Shore fans to see Harper, who is off to a scalding start, hitting .357 (10th in the league) with 7 HRs and 23 RBIs (both second).

He started the year 9-39 but is 21-45 since with six HRs and 16 RBIs in his last 13 games.

Also, earlier this week in West Virginia he was involved in a bench-clearing incident (not a brawl – no punches were thrown). You can watch video here, but Harper said something to the catcher after homering in his first AB and then someone said something after he struck out in his second AB.

Harper went 2-11 against Lakewood in Hagerstown on the first road trip of the season.

Here’s the promo rundown for next week:

  • Friday at 7:05: post-game fireworks thanks to Toyota/Scion World of Lakewood
  • Saturday at 4:05: Bark in the Park thanks to Magic 100.1 and 95.9 WRAT…bring your dog to the game!
  • Sunday at 1:05: Kids Eat Free / Kids Character Sunday
  • Monday at 6:35: Kids Eat Free / Preakness preview

Here’s your order tickets link (or call 732-901-7000) but note that tickets for this series are filling up fast.

Where did the title of the post come from? Here are the shirts that the staffers wear at Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown.

How’s This For Two Visits

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Last night, we ran our Kentucky Derby preview race at FirstEnergy Park, with Dialed In, who will likely be installed as the morning line favorite when the race is drawn later today,

Bill Brower of Tinton Falls correctly predicted Dialed In, wh

o beat Mucho Macho Man by about half of a nose, and was then selected the grand prize winner, taking home a Haskell prize pack courtesy of Monmouth Park.

It was Bill’s second visit to FirstEnergy Park. Last year, he came out and proposed to his wife.

Beat that.

On a side note, we are going to preview the Preakness Stakes on May 16th (actual race May 21st) and the Belmont Stakes on June 10th (actual race June 12th). It will be quite similar to what we did last night. Photos below.

Here is Mr. Brower with Dialed In’s “rider” in a post-sixth-inning ceremony.

(click to enlarge) Dialed In (#4) commences his rally. He would nose out Mucho Macho Man (#7) on the wire with Watch Me Go (#16) finishing 3rd. Brilliant Speed (#2) made a big move to take the lead near the top of the stretch but faded. 2 year old champ Uncle Mo (#15) is in 5th and you can see the tiring Shackelford (#11) and ArchArchArch (#1).

Tuesday: We Run the Derby

Friday, April 29th, 2011

derbyfullLast year, the BlueClaws re-enacted the Kentucky Derby (video below). This year, we’re running it for real. And if you pick the winner, you can win a Haskell Prize Pack from Monmouth Park. It’s all a part of our Kentucky Derby celebration this Tuesday at FirstEnergy Park.

What: A running of the Kentucky Derby (run for real next Saturday) between innings. The “riders” will be in their jockey silks and we’ll run the race.

How You Can Play: Simply sign up at the Monmouth Park table on the concourse. When you register, you can pick the winner. After the race, we’ll select one grand prize winner from everyone that picked the race winner, and that person will win a Haskell Prize Pack. The Haskell is a $1 million race run at Monmouth Park this year on July 31st.

Also: We’ll give out Monmouth Park free admission passes at the Monmouth table on Tuesday.

Here is a list of probable Derby starters.

Here is the link to order tickets to Tuesday’s game. And below is last year’s race.

Congrats to Larry Collmus

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

While you can’t hear him, Larry Collmus, Monmouth Park announcer, called our Kentucky Derby re-enactment last year.

This year, he’ll call the real thing. Congrats to Larry! And enjoy our re-enactment below:

Is it a coincidence that he went from Lakewood to Louisville?

Yes. But feel free to believe otherwise.

Three Weeks Until Opener / Raise the Banner

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

openingdayfullAs I type this, we’re just short of 7 pm on Thursday (St. Patrick’s Day), which means in three weeks exactly, we’ll be underway at FirstEnergy Park in game one of the 2011 season.

We’ll probably be in the second inning, unless of course we get a repeat of 2007′s Opening Day.

Anyway, we’re once again giving fans the opportunity to raise the South Atlantic League Championship Banner. Fans can bid on eBay by clicking here and all proceeds from the auction will benefit BlueClaws Charities.

Opening Day is also a Thirsty Thursday, which is cool. It’s the first time we’ve opened on a Thirsty Thursday since we instituted the promotion.

On that note, click here to become a fan of Thirsty Thursday on Facebook and like our first post to show how psyched you are for the first Thirsty Thursday of 2011.

Here is info on the Thirsty Thursday Club, which includes a free mug and a bunch more. Do you bring friends out to Thirsty Thursday? Then the club is perfect since you can use all the tickets in two or three games and keep the mug.

Enjoy the games tonight.

Jack Morris to Sign Autographs on July 7th

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

The BlueClaws on Wednesday announced an exciting addition to the 2011 promotional schedule: Jack Morris for an autograph signing on July 7th, a Thirsty Thursday.

Morris, who this year received 53.5% of the Hall of Fame vote (75% required for election) was a five-time all-star and four-time World Series Champion.

He’s perhaps best known for throwing 10 shutout innings to win Game 7 of the 1991 World Series 1-0 over the Braves. He won four games in that post-season alone. He also holds the record for consecutive Opening Day starts with 14.

Morris will sign autographs for BlueClaws fans at the July 7th game, which begins at 7:05.

Previous players to sign autographs at BlueClaws games include Hall of Famers Steve Carlton, Andre Dawson, Goose Gossage, Bob Feller, and Jim Rice, as well as Darryl Strawberry, Mitch Williams, and more.

Congrats to Hacksaw Jim Duggan

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

hacksaw-blog1Congratulations go out to Hacksaw Jim Duggan, who last night, it was announced, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania on April 2nd.

Hacksaw was at FirstEnergy Park in June of 2009 to sign autographs and pose for pictures, such as the one shown on the right (I think you could sneak a fastball buy him on the inside corner, but that’s just me).

He joins a line of wrestlers that have appeared at FirstEnergy Park:

King Kong Bundy
Mick Foley
Ted “The Million Dollar Man” DiBiase
Jerry “The King” Lawler
Sergeant Slaughter

George “The Animal” Steele

Those noted in bold are already the Hall of Fame and King Kong Bondy and Mick Foley figure to be certain entries.

This year, we’ll have the Iron Sheik and Nickolai Volkoff on June 11th.

On a side note, here is a hilarious interview given by the Million Dollar Man on the Shore Sports Network last year. And below is Hacksaw’s entrance music.
