Bridgeport Blue Fish @ Ducks, Spring Training Game.

This past Saturday the Long Island Ducks held there 2nd annual Fan Fest that included the chance to watch batting practice and than a game vs. Cross Sound Rival Bridgeport Bluefish.
The attendance was very low for this years fan fest. The combined MLB service time of the players on last years roster was much greater than the service time on the Ducks roster this year.Which I'm sure had a lot to do with the low attendance.

During batting practiced seemed to be the best time to get auto's. There are only a handful of players from last year on the team. So, picking out players was not as easy as it has been.
I didn't get as many as I had hoped.

On the Ducks I got:
Fernando Hernandez, 2 cards. was a 49th rd pick by the A's in 2002. Pitched in 3 games in 2008 with the A's. Has also pitched in the White Sox, Yankees, and Jays systems.
