Tonight we saw the St. Lucie Mets play the Brevard County Manatees. The St. Lucie Mets are a Single A affiliate of the New York Mets. Thomas J. White Stadium was built in 1988 and seat 7,160. Mr. White, according to one of the ushers, was in real estate and involved with getting the land for the facility. Seating capacity with the bleachers, which were not open for this game, is 7,347. I would estimate that attendance was 2,051. Tonight was little league night and we saw several teams that had Mariners affiliation. The Lady Mariners are a girl's fast pitch softball team. The Everett Aquasox are a baseball team. There was a Mariners baseball team, but I could not get their picture. It was a good game with the usual Single A level errors and pitching. St. Lucie was behind most of the game, but when the Brevard County 9th inning pitcher filled the bases St. Lucie was able to come back and win 6-5. The box score was Manatees R-5, H-12, E-4 and Mets R-6, H-7, E-1. The field lines are RF & LF 338 and CF-410. Joel from the Everett Aquasox team is shown at a between-inning hoop shoot contest against one of the Mets pitchers. Neither sunk a hoop, but Joel still won a prize. Today's activity was Happy Hour, so between 4 and 6 you could get $1 soft drinks, beer, and hot dogs. Slider is the mascot. New Logo in 2013.
