The 21st #SummerOfBaseball – the Norfolk Tides – @NorfolkTides

norfolk tidesAnother #SummerOfBaseball ball arrived – the 21st one comes from the Norfolk Tides, currently the AAA affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. We Mets fans knew them well as the Tidewater Tides when the Tides were the Mets affiliate from 1969-2006.

Many of the famous Tides Alumni come to us from the ranks of the Mets, including Edgardo Alfonzo, Wally Backman, Ron Darling, Lenny Dykstra, Sid Fernandez, Ron Gardenhire, Dwight Gooden, Clint Hurdle, Billy Beane, Gregg Jefferies, Jason Isringhausen, Kevin Mitchell, Melvin Mora, Mike Scott, Darryl Strawberry, John Stearns, Mookie Wilson, and David Wright.

The Tides were awesome enough to send up an official used AAA International League Ball – thanks Tides!
