Game Recap: Reality TV Night
Hey, ‘Cats fans! We hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend as much as we have been here at “The Joe!” Last night, we held our first ever Reality TV Night at the stadium for the ValleyCats matchup against the Miami Marlins affiliate, Batavia Muckdogs! We spent a week of behind-the-scenes filming our very own webisode series, “The (Front) Office” and played the show on our video board during the pregame show. Fans were able to receive our 2014 Team Poster as a giveaway when they came through the front gates and into the park, and were also able to sign up for some reality TV themed on-field promotions!
After we aired our reality TV clips, Colonel Schiller from the Watervliet Arsenal threw a ceremonial first pitch and the ValleyCats Employees of the Month were recognized down on the field. We had a great crowd out to cheer on the ValleyCats in their first game in a three-game series against the Muckdogs!
The ValleyCats offense lead the way again with Troy Scribner on the mound for the ‘Cats. Second baseman Alex Hernandez had a home run in the second inning to give the ‘Cats an early 7-1 lead. Terrell Joyce, Ariel Ovando, Jose Solano, Mott Hyde and Jaimie Ritchie all had big hits for the ‘Cats and with the support of some awesome pitching by Scribner, Raul Rivera and Jordan Mills, the ValleyCats took home an 8-4 victory in the first game of the series!
Tonight, the ‘Cats are back for the last Sunday Funday of the season presented by St. Peter’s Health Partners, and NFL Night/Wing Fest sponsored by AT&T. We hope to see our loyal ‘Cats fans out at the ballpark to finish off a perfect summer weekend at “The Joe!” Sunday Funday festivities begin at 3:30 p.m. with a 5 p.m first pitch! Vamos Gatos!
