On my way home this morning I was listening to the Boomer and Carton show on Sports Radio 66 WFAN.
I tuned in just in time to hear host Craig Carton ask former NY Met Darryl Strawberry if he would be a member of Boomer and Carton’s softball team for a charity game against the Yankee Old Timers sometime in mid July at Yankee Stadium.
After talking with Strawberry about this year’s Mets team the two hosts speculated about other members of the softball team that will take the field against the Yankee Old Timers.
One name that stood out was Governor Chris Christie, (it seems as though the two are very friendly according to Carton in the past) Carton said that the governor has already committed to joining the team and playing at the stadium this July.
Boomer thought that it was great that the governor committee to play but ask Carton what position he would play? Boomer stated that he would be playing center field, Carton took shortstop and they assigned 1st base to Strawberry and Christie would be the 3rd baseman if he could lose a little weight.
Tinker to Evers to Chance…Christie to Carton to Strawberry…Oh Boy!
