The Tigers were home Friday and Saturday with a cruical series against the Vermont Lake Monsters.  The two home games, plus two games in Vermont tonight, have the potential to alter the Stedler Division standings.  As of this morning, Connecticut sits a half game out of first place behind the Lake Monsters.

Homestand Recap: August 17-22

The Tigers completed a 7-game, 6-day home stand on Monday.

A few roving instructors were in “The Rose City” for the homestand, sent by Detroit to help finetune some players’ techniques.

Toby Harrah helped with the hitters,

Dave Owen assisted with the infielders fielding techniques, while Gene Roof gave instruction in the areas of base running and playing the outfield.

The added instruction must have helped the team’s on-field results, as the Tigers took 5 of 7 games from the Yankees and IronBirds.

Some photos from the homestand:

The two Tigers outfielders signed autographs on the concourse with former MLB pitcher Frank Tanana, the headline speaker of the Home Plate Event.

Tanana also threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

The homestand also marked the debut of a brand new promotion, the Affinity Dental Center Brush off the Bases.

Sunday was Bark in the Park at the stadium and many fans brought their dog(s) to the game.

Promotions also had a canine-theme to them.

Old Lyme’s Ryan Zrenda had a large contigent of supporters in the stands all series to see him play for the IronBirds.

Tyler Collins and Javier Azcona hit home runs for the Tigers.

The Tigers are home again Friday and Saturday with a cruical series against the Vermont Lake Monsters.  The Lake Monsters lead the Stedler Division and the Tigers look to use the games to make up ground in the standings.

Friday there will be post-game fireworks

and Saturday will be Norwich Navigators Night.

Vermont – Tri-City Roadtrip

A few pics that Justin took from the past roadtrip:

The Tigers played at Vermont June 23rd-June 25th.

Centennial Field is the oldest ballpark in America.

Located on the University of Vermont campus, the field’s first game was played in 1906, 105 years ago.

Vermont’s Manager Rick Magnante addresses his team before a game.

No surprise as to why Saturday’s game was suspended.

The Tigers then traveled to Troy, NY for 3 games against the Tri-City ValleyCats.

Great view from the pressbox at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.
