Howard Johnson (HoJo) To Play For Rockland Boulders
Today the Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am League announced that they have signed former New York Met Howard Johnson, along with his son Glen for the remainder of the season.
I happen to live 15 minutes from Provident Bank Park, home of the Rockland Boulders, and interned there over the summer. This is the first year of the organizations existence, and they are rounding out their 50 game home schedule over the next week. Johnson and son Glen will live out the old father/son Field Of Dreams, dream. They will place next to one another on a baseball diamond for a professional baseball team.
The Boulders are a first class organization. It was a pleasure to intern with them this summer and put together a true foundation for future years. It was not surprise me at all if the Mets or Yankees eventually sign the Boulders as an affiliate for their minor league systems.
Unfortunately my internship ended last week as I had to go back to school. I will not be able to cover any of the HoJo comeback games. However I will be sure to Tweet HoJo’s batting line from each nights game once they go final.
