You Never Know What You'll See In The Minors...

Sunday was a full day. After spending the early morning in Plainville for the Hot Air Balloon Festival, I took my youngest to Bridgeport to see the Bluefish play against the Lancaster Barnstormers. We met up with Jesse from Milford Photo, and a few others from the meetup group. Jesse noted that he saw a lot of people wearing Met paraphernalia waiting to get in, and I couldn't figure out why.

When the starting line-ups were announced, I saw that former Met Chris Schwinden was starting for Lancaster:

I doubted that was it.

There was even almost-but-never-was-Met Boof Bonser coming out of the bullpen:

That wasn't it, either.

There was this announcement from the PA announcer just before the game, "To throw out the first pitch, please welcome former Major League great, Dwight Gooden":

Didn't see that one coming.
