The Newark Bears opened the 2013 Can-Am League season with a 6-4 loss to the Rockland Boulders on Thursday night. Newark’s Mike Ness allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over six innings, but three of those six hits were home runs. D’Angelo Jimenez was the star of the game for the Bears, putting together a three-hit night and driving in a pair of runs while scoring one.

On Friday, the Bears will kick off their home schedule and try to even things up with the Boulders at 7:05 p.m. at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. Former Negro League pitcher Bob Scott is scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, the first 200 fans will get a free Newark Bears cap and a post-game fireworks show.

I don’t know how many games I will be able to get to this summer, but I plan to be there for Opening Night. I hope to see a few of you at the ballpark.
