Take Me Out to the Ballgame… the Newark Bears Are On Fire!

Checking in from the beach in Bay Head, New Jersey, at the start of a perfect weekend, I found the following note in the Roxy’s Best Of… Mailbag and wanted to share it with all of you:

Hi Roxy, I wanted to send you some info on the Newark Bears, who are currently vying for first place in the AAA division…they are on fire! The team tries to keep their events fun and affordable for the whole family – most nights offer a lot more than “just baseball.”  Tickets are only $8 to begin with, and they often offer Buy-One-Get-One deals (see Two-For Tuesday below for example), $1 dog nights, and free fun activities. The Newark Bears recently held a Firefighters Night where they honored firefighters and had engines on site for the kids to see and learn about. Upcoming the Bears have Artie Lange and Brian McKnight throwing out first pitches. You can also check out an exhibit from the Negro League Museum on site, which chronicles, among other things, Newark’s history in opening doors for minorities in sports. I was hoping that you would want to feature the Bears on your blog and share it with fellow mom and dad bloggers.  Thanks for the consideration.

Melissa
