Southern Maryland Blue Crabs...Great Organization


When our beloved Nats are out of town, I am beginning to support our local Blue Crabs.  I went to a couple of games last season, and went to another one this past Sunday.  Unfortunately, a small kid was hit in the head by a line drive foul ball, and appeared to be in very bad shape when taken from the stadium by ambulance, but other than that extremely sad and emotional episode, I had a great time in Regency Furniture Stadium.  After the game, my son (who plays in the Bambino Buddy Ball League in Charles County) had the opportunity to play in a "Buddy Ball" game at Regency, and a few of the Blue Crab players came out and participated.  Bambino Buddy Ball is a league for disabled youth (and adults alike) who are assisted by "buddies" who help them hit, catch and throw (usually Baby Ruth League Baseball and CCYL Girls Softball Players and Coaches).  My oldest son, who has cerebral palsy, was buddied at one point or another with two different Blue Crab players, and he had a blast!  I encourage everyone to get out sometimes and check out the Blue Crabs and Regency Furniture Stadium....it is a guaranteed fun time for the entire family.  The team plays hard, and the facilities are great.  I don't know much about the ins and outs of minor league farm teams moving about, but it would be great to see the Blue Crabs move from the  independant league, and eventually become one of our farm clubs!  Oh, one more mention....John Halama pitched this past Sunday, and pitched a complete game for the win.  Halama spent many seasons in the Majors, and I believe had a brief stint with the Nats.  Any chance of a comeback for Halama?  Gotta be more solid than some of they guys we've had in "our" bullpen.  On a last note, many thanks to the CCYL and the SoMd Blue Crabs for giving my kid a magical moment this past Sunday!  As for the child hit with the line drive, we certainly hope you are well!
