Steaming into Norwich
Great Take Dept: If you are a Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun fan, on your next spring or summer visit, be sure to check out the nearby Eastern League Norwich Navigators (AA, SF Giants). The Navigators play in a really great park (Dodd Stadium) with great views, food (try the sausage sandwich!), friendly staff, and pretty good promotions for a AA franchise - especially the fireworks. And, unlike New Britain or Portland, parking is free. Now that Norwich is no longer a Yankee affiliate, RSN citizens ought to feel more comfortable there.

And go for another really important reason: Steaming into Norwich as the pitching coach is Bob “The Steamer” Stanley - a coach in the Giants’ organization last season with the Single-A Hagerstown Suns of the South Atlantic League. Stanley replaces Ross Grimsley on the 'Gators staff. (Grimsley has been promoted as the pitching coach with Triple-A Fresno.)

[Brother Tim...........Amen! If I never hear about the A-Rod deal again, I'll be a happy man.]
