A Class-AA affiliate of the New York Yankees, the Trenton Thunder steal bases and hearts as they foster future Major League players, with alumni including Robinson Cano, Joba Chamberlain, and Nomar Garciaparra. Starting off the season with an Eastern League–leading 44–32 record, the Thunder take on cross-divisional foes the Senators and Curve before fighting to keep their lead in the east against the Rock Cats. Shortstop Jose Pirela has exploded as the offensive leader, batting .370 a mere month and a half after taking a pitch to the head. "Now that I've been hit, I can hit," Pirela quipped to the Trentonian. On the mound, starter Brett Marshall sends batters back to their dugout's time-out chair, garnering an 8–3 record and 3.09 ERA to start the year.
Eyes fatigued from admiring the Thunder can rest upon the scenic Delaware River or watch popular golden retrievers Chase and Derby act as bat dogs, bringing water to the umpire and informing the manager whenever the center fielder falls down a well. Along with hosting recent appearances by such major-leaguers as Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter, the Mercer County Waterfront Park has recently embraced a number of green initiatives, such as energy-efficient lighting and eco-friendly Greenware beer cups.
