Exhibition Game Could Become Yearly Event

I just spoke to Trenton Thunder GM Brad Taylor, and there’s some good news and some bad news for Thunder fans…

The good news is that Taylor said that he thinks the April 1st exhibition game between the Scranton Yankees and Trenton Thunder to be held at Waterfront Park could be a yearly event, which would be held at alternating locations every season.

The bad news is that for those of you holding out hope that the New York Yankees might one day play an exhibition game against the Thunder — as the Red Sox did during their stint as Trenton’s affiliate — Taylor thought that was highly unlikely, but he did say not to rule it out.

There could be more bad news if you don’t act fast on tickets, as Taylor told me there was “significant response” to the game now that tickets have gone on sale.

So, how did this all get started?

“I approached the Yankees and asked if this was something we could do,” Taylor said.

Taylor said that after the team won the title in Akron, that the fans never really got a chance to welcome the team home and that this would be a great way for them to see some of the players who’ve moved up a level for 2008.

“This is a great opportunity to see a lot of the best Yankees prospects all in one game,” he said.
