The Somerset Patriots will host their 2015 home opener at TD Bank Ballpark on Friday, May 1st against the York Revolution at 7:05 pm.
The game will include an extraordinary Post Game Fireworks Show and 2015 Schedule Magnets for all fans presented by Somerset Health Care Foundation.
It will also be Bridgewater Baseball And Softball Night with thousands of players, families, and friends joining the Somerset Patriots as the 2015 season kicks off at home.
Following a second-straight playoff appearance and record-breaking performances on the field, the Somerset Patriots are looking to continue the winning tradition of the franchise under third-year manager Brett Jodie.
The roster boasts 11 former Major Leaguers and nine returning players that were part of the 2014 roster. Major League veterans Robert Andino, Mat Gamel, Chris Marrero, Scott Cousins, and Thomas Neal are set to suit up for Somerset this season. Nate Spears also returns, following a stint with Somerset that led to his signing with the Philadelphia Phillies last season.
Returning to the line up will be last season’s Atlantic League “Catcher of the Year” and All-Star Adam Donachie and team leader and fan favorite, outfielder Jonny Tucker.
Major League arms added this season include Mitch Atkins, Buddy Boshers, Andrew Carignan, and Mickey Storey. Atkins last pitched for Somerset in 2013 before signing with the Atlanta Braves.
Key returning pitchers are record-breaking closer and 2014 Atlantic League “Closer of the Year” Jon Hunton and the 2014 Atlantic League “Left-Handed Starter of the Year” Matt Zielinski.
The Somerset Patriots open the season on the road in Southern Maryland on Friday, April 24th and then travel to Bridgeport before the first game at TD Bank Ballpark on May 1st.
