As part of the Atlantic League, the Bridgeport Bluefish commence the 2012 season with an April 26 home-game blitz against the Camden Riversharks. In 2011, the Bluefish came in second in the Liberty Division, garnering a playoff berth without resorting to such dirty tactics as bribing umpires with hot dogs. This year, the team attempts to claim the title once and for all behind stalwarts such as go-to pitcher Matt Pike and new talent such as slugger Daryl Jones, who led the North American League last year with 28 home runs and 90 RBIs.
As the innings fly past, ticket holders survey the action from high above at the Harbor Club, a suite-level section located directly above home plate. There, fans can feel the warm glow of the sun and the cool breeze from whiffed bats from the outdoor seats or retire into the climate-controlled restaurant and bar to watch the action on two flat-screen TVs.
In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.
The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.
