A Night in Coney Island

Last night I had the good fortune to get out to Coney Island to enjoy some minor league action with Joe Sheehan, Jay Jaffe, Emma Span, Geoff Silver, Matt Meyers and Jesse Spector, as the Mets' New York-Penn League team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, faced down the Baltimore Orioles short-season squad, the Aberdeen IronBirds. I had my camera with me, so enjoy this slideshow with a few notes from the game:

Game 89: Instant Classic?

Game 89, the first game after this year's All-Star break, was just on YES (for anyone interested, it'll be replayed tomorrow at 9AM). YES has declared the game a Yankees Classic, because it was the Yanks' first game after the death of team owner George Steinbrenner, and their first home game since the death of longtime PA announcer Bob Sheppard. I was at the game, and took a bunch of pictures (but none, sadly, of the pre-game ceremony) which I didn't have time to post at the time. Here's a photo album of that game:
