Big League Baseball(er) in Binghamton, Thursday 14 August

Baseball fans with flexible schedules have a chance tonight to see All-Star pitcher Billy Wagner pitching for the Binghamton Mets.

Wagner is one of the premier relief pitchers in the major leagues, but will be the starting pitcher tonight for the Binghamton Mets. Wagner is on the disabled list with the big league Mets; the start in Binghamton is part of his rehab program.

If you go, though, don't be late. Wagner is scheduled to pitch no more than two innings.

We went to the B-Mets game on Sunday and had a great time, as always. We saw Fernando Martinez, the 19-year old phenom who is the Mets' top prospect, and likely left-fielder next season.

The game starts at 7 pm. Tickets are $8 and $9.
