Bridgeport Bluefish Baseball: Taste Great, Less Filling

Bridgeport_bluefish_w_powerplant_1 The hot dogs taste great.

Why? $2.00 each versus $4.75 at Yankee Stadium or Shea.

Bud Light? Delicious—best ever. $4.75 instead of $8.00. Bridgeport_bluefish_outside_stadium

Parking? A dream. Across the street and $4.00 versus $14.00 when you see the Bronx Bombers.

Oh yeah… It is also great baseball.

And the kids loved it.

We are talking about the ex- major leaguer Tommy John’s Bridgeport Bluefish, a single A minor league team just 40 minutes up the road (I-95) in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Bridgeport_bluefish_mascot_4A recent trip to a Sunday afternoon game did start with some concern after the opposing team made three errors in a single play. I thought Walter Matthau was going to walk onto the mound and give Tatum O’Neal some tips. But that play turned out to be an aberration.

We enjoyed 11 innings of quality baseball including a walk-off home run by the Bluefish to cinch the game in the bottom of the 11th inning. Final score was 8-7 Bluefish over the York Revolution.Bridgeport_bluefish_fans_run_bases_
