We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Somerset Patriots

What: Somerset Patriots

Where: TD Bank Ballpark
             1 Cole Drive
             Bridgewater, NJ

Who: Everyone

Our view: Another alternative to minor league baseball is independent league baseball. Independent leagues are leagues of teams that are not affiliated with any major league teams. This does not mean, however, that the team does not consist of major league caliber players. Many of the players on independent league teams come from the major leagues. Some even get drafted into or redrafted into the major leagues from the independent league.  Former Patriot players include former Major Leaguers, such as, Pat Kelly, Tim Raines and Jerome Walton as well as sons of former Major Leaguers, such as, Tim Raines Jr. and Jeff Nettles.  Former Yankee, Sparky Lyle, the Patriots manager througout  their first 15 seasons led them to five championships. The Patriots play in the Atlantic Baseball league at TD Bank Ballpark. Tickets range from $9.50 to $13.50 each. Even suite tickets are only $25.00 to $35.00 a piece. The season goes from May through mid September. For more information or to order tickets go to somersetpatriots.com.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for more about the Somerset Patriots.
