Films on Friday: Minor League Playoffs


The Minor League Baseball playoffs are in full swing right now, though its not always easy to tell. In the Carolina League semi-final round, Lynchburg and Potomac are tied at one a piece as the series moves to Potomac tonight. There appears to be absolutely no video, however, of the two games they’ve already played in this series.

Fortunately, other leagues and teams have provided video and there are several games broadcast on MiLB.TV. Here are a few scenes from last night’s Eastern League game between the Trenton Thunder and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (New Hampshire leads the series 2-0):

 

 

Happy Friday!

Home Run Derby, Bat Dog


Earlier this week, the baseball world paid tribute to Home Run Derby, the Bat Dog of the Trenton Thunder who died after a bout with cancer. In memoriam, Ben Hill of milb.com wrote a great piece today on baseball’s bat dogs. The Trenton Thunder announced that they will celebrate Derby Day on January 26th, Derby’s birthday.

 

Just to cheer us up a little, here is some adorable footage of Gleyber Torres playing with Derby and his son, Rookie:

 

Thanks for the memories, Derby! May you now get all the dog treats you want!
