Newark Bears Game Today

The Newark Bears play in the Atlantic League which is a minor league not affiliated with Major League Baseball. Since the NJIT baseball teams plays there, the university has an agreement to allow employees to go to game free at the Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium within walking distance of the campus. I usually go once a season and try to get an NJIT library contingent to come with me. Today I was able to convince Galen and Aron to come with me.

The game began at 11 AM to accommodate day camps bringing their kids to the game. There was actually a power failure in the stadium. The scoreboard didn't work and there was no loudspeaker system. We had seats right behind the dugout of the visiting Long Island Ducks managed by hall of famer and former Met Gary Carter. The Bears are managed by former Montreal Expo Tim Raines. The Bears won the game 8-2. By 2 PM I was back at work.
