Bees, Bluefish And Four Lineup Cards

The Bees dropped their final game before the Atlantic League All Star break, but I was able to get four lineup cards from the afternoon game.

Trailing 2-0, New Britain pulled within 2-1 late.  But with runners at first and second with no outs in the top of the 9th, the Bees first baseman fielded a bunt and tried to get the lead runner.  Instead, he threw wildly into left field.  Bridgeport scored three runs in the inning and won 5-2.

The announced crowd was 4,547, but the number was either exaggerated, the vast majority of fans invisible and/or they had left by the time I snapped this picture in the top of the 9th inning.

Bees manager Stan Cliburn not only gave me his dugout lineup card, but also the two official batting order carbon copies.

Of note for the Bluefish was former MLB journeyman Endy Chavez playing center field and batting second for the Bluefish.
