It’s been awhile since we watched Sir Sidney Ponson pitch entirely too well for the Long Island Ducks out at Suffolk Country Sports Park in Central Islip. But our summerlong tour of area Minor League stadiums starts back up tonight with a visit to Skylands Park, the former home of the New Jersey Cardinals — care to guess which of your Sports Section editors has caught a game here in the past? — and current home of the Sussex Skyhawks of the Can-Am League.
The Skyhawks are currently in third place in the Can-Am League standings, seven games behind tonight’s opponent, Les Capitales de Québec. Do stop over and say hello if by some chance you find yourself in the vicinity of Augusta, New Jersey, tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. — assuming last night’s suspended game, resuming at 5 p.m., finishes in a timely manner.
