York Revolution vs. Long Island Ducks

This was my first trip to Sovereign Bank Stadium to see the York Revolution play last night.  I picked up a team set and an Atlantic League pin for my collection.  Looking down through the roster of the Revolution I didn’t recognize any names except for the manager, Chris Hoiles, who played 10 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, and Ryan Minor, the hitting coach, who replaced Cal Ripken, Jr the night he ended his consecutive game streak.  When looking at the roster for the Long Island Ducks, I saw a few names that stood out like Pete Rose, Jr and Carl Everett.  Pete Rose, Jr, has been playing minor league ball for awhile and has only had a small taste of the majors when he was called up back in 1997.  Carl Everett is a two time All-Star and a 2005 World Series Champion.  I wasn’t surprised to see that Everett was batting .371 and the beginning of the game.  The Revolution won 8-7 after being down 4-0 at the beginning of the game.  Before the game started I was able to get Matt Dryer, who plays first base for the Revolution, to sign my ticket stub.  I was able to get a bunch of photos.
