Scranton to play at Trenton in April

The Trenton Thunder, the Yankees double A affiliate, will host the triple A team, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, on April 1, via Peter Abraham.

This is a very interesting idea, as I'm sure there will be many former Thunder players on the SWB Yankees this season.

Here are some quotes from the press release:

“This should really be a special night for Thunder and Yankee fans,” said Thunder General Manager/Chief Operating Officer Brad Taylor. “Getting the players from last year’s team together again for this game will be a thrill. It’s not too often we get guys to come back after they’ve moved on, so this gives fans a chance to see them united in Trenton one more time.”

“This game with the Thunder will showcase all the talent in the Yankee farm system,” said Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Executive Vice President / COO Jeremy Ruby. “This will really be a memorable night for the baseball fans in New York, Scranton and New Jersey.”

“This game will give the Thunder fans a great chance to honor so many of the players that made the 2007 season so memorable. The 2007 Thunder was a special group of very talented young men,” said New York Yankee Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations Mark Newman.

Tickets will go on sale on Jan. 21 at 9:30 a.m. on the Trenton Thunder's official website. Too bad I'll still be up in Connecticut.
