Elmira, New York (August 5,
to historic Dunn Field in Elmira, New York for a game between the Elmira
Pioneers and the Aces, the road team of the Northeast League (similar to the
Road Warriors of the Atlantic League). Two former Bears play for the Aces,
catcher Jason Torres,
wearing his familiar number 13, and pitcher
Alex Pena, number 27.
We missed Alex pitching (he had
pitched the previous night), but Jason was in the lineup, and he went
2-for-4 for the evening. The Aces beat the Pioneers 8-3, and are currently
(as of August 12) 5 1/2 games back of the New Jersey Jackals, who are
leading the South Division.
