As part of the Atlantic League, the Bridgeport Bluefish head into the final stretch of the 2012 season. The critical games will see the team try to make up ground against Liberty League leaders the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in an effort to claim the second-half title and garner a playoff berth without resorting to such dirty tactics as bribing umpires with hot dogs. Pitching hopes rest on left-handed starter Paul Oseguera who has turned in a blistering 2012 season with 10 wins, a 2.56 ERA, and a league-leading 127 strikeouts. Veteran outfielder Prentice Redman helps drive the offense continuing a season that has seen 16 home runs, 60 RBIs, and a positive glee for sliding into bases.
As the innings fly past, ticket holders survey the action from field-box seats, arrayed directly around the diamond. There, fans can bask in the warm glow of the sun, sitting close enough to the players to feel the cool breeze from whiffed bats and hear their good-natured joshing, delivered in the traditional iambic pentameter.
Though the Bridgeport Bluefish sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
