#HipNJ: Weekend Recap 8/9-8/11

#HipNJ: Weekend Recap 8/9-8/11

It was a good week for baseball fans in the #NewJersey & #NewYork area, just in time for the #HipNJ weekend recap!

The Mets have pushed themselves to the forefront of baseball with their impressive winning streak which is uncommon for the New York baseball team.

First basemen, Pete Alonso has embedded his new motivational slogan, “L-F-G-M” which has quickly caught fire within the Mets fanbase as the new holy words to be spoken at every game. The Met’s most recent 8 games hot streak was cut short on Sunday night against the Washington Nationals with a 4-7 loss for the team. Right before that, the team had a four-game sweep over the Florida Marlins and a two-game win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The comeback team is striving for the wild card position as the playoffs quickly begin to approach and for the first time in years, the Mets may actually have a chance. While their streak may have ended, the momentum and optimism still very much remains within the Mets community.

“We just need to keep rolling,” Alonso stated at the post-game press conference on Sunday night.

New Jersey and New York are well represented on the Mets roster, Brad Brach hails from Freehold, NJ and Todd Fraizer is from Point Pleasant, NJ while Joe Panik, Marcus Stroman, and Steven Matz are all from New York.

The Mets weren’t the only team playing ball this weekend, the New Jersey Jackals which are apart of the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball faced off against the Sussex County Minors on Saturday night. Yet, unlike any regular baseball game, this one was met with a 90’s night theme. Fans were encouraged to wear their most grunge look for the festivities, the first 1000 fans were gifted a Jack the Jackal bobble head plus fireworks after the game.

While the Jackals lost on Saturday night against the minors they defeated their opponents on Friday and Sunday. In all this wasn’t a bad weekend for New Jersey baseball lovers.

The little league team, The Elmora Troopers, from Elizabeth, could be making history as the first New Jersey team in 20 years to play in the World Series. After beating a team from Haverstraw, NY they gained the title of Mid-Atlantic Champs and are now advancing to Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The team has being inspired by the Mets Todd Frazier who played on the team in 1998.

In other news, there was a ketchup thief at the Perkins down the Jersey Shore, in Lacey Township last week. The thief, who has not been identified, was so guilt ridden, that they brought back two new bottles of Heinz Ketchup and a letter, stating why they did it.

Facebook/Maria DiLeo

As the letter states, the thief, who has never done anything of the sorts, felt like being “risky” by looting the condiment, only to soon find that karma immediately caught up to them. They had apparently gotten into a car accident the same day, among other negative happenings. The thief believes it’s a string of bad luck all due to stealing from the restaurant, therefore, bringing two bottles back would repay their debt.

The story was shared over Facebook, going viral enough that the Heinz Company got a hold of the person and offered to pay for the damages of their car! Talk about good karma catching up!

 

Got a cool story or event that happened in the Garden state you want us to share? Give us the scoop here and we might feature it on the next #HipNJ weekend recap!
