Our Minor League Stadium Crawl continues tonight with a drive down the Garden State Parkway to FirstEnergy Park, home of the South Atlantic League’s Lakewood BlueClaws. (Lakewood’s inclusion in this particular league indicates a loose definition of the phrase “South Atlantic.”) The defending league champs, the BlueClaws are a single-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. We anticipate seeing lots of Ryan Howard T-shirts tonight.
First pitch is at 7 p.m. If you’re at the game, do stop over and say hello. It’s Dollar Dog Wednesday, notebook night (for kids only), and there’s a beer tasting (for adults only). Which is too bad, since there’s nothing young Phillies fans love more than a frosty beer.
