for it's one, two, three strikes, you're out ...

So the goal this summer was to see our Ducks play each of the other 7 teams in the Atlantic League.  and with a game against the Maryland Blue Crabs, we achieved our goal.

It was an interesting evening. A local medical group sponsored the game. The promotional giveaway, to the first 1500 fans, was a t shirt featuring the team mascot, Quackerjack, suited up as a doctor. Dr. Quackerjack, I presume?

So of course we got there before the gates opened. And while I was waiting to be admitted to the park, I had a lovely conversation with another fan, showed her my photos from Cooperstown.

Rep. Peter King, a member of the Long Island delegation to Congress, was at the ballpark to throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Bud Harrelson. I saw King and Harrelson playing catch beforehand -- rank has its privileges.

The Ducks took an early lead, scored twice in the first inning. Final score 4-1.

I thought this would be our last Ducks game of the season. But Drew decided to give the prize wheel a shot, and won two tickets to the September 3 game against the Bluefish.

I'm so loving this.
