Tino Martinez to play for the Newark Bears… sort of.

So Colin Powell will throw the first pitch opening day and Patti Labelle will sing the national anthem.  Tim Raines is the manager.  Tino Martinez will appear and sign autographs at the May 3rd game.  Retired major leaguers will play on Sunday home games.  


Yes it actually sounds like the group that bough the bears actually has a clue.  They are being creative with ways to leverage the star power that Newark is building and attract attention to the home team.  

Now if they can only get Paul O’Neill to play I may be able to get my wife to go to a game.
