Nice MiLB card, though a little bland. I like how it shows the number on the card, though.

I didn't realize these are the old Norwich Navigators. I guess local baseball is not my thing.

Actually, they are not. Before moving to CT, they were in Oneonta, NY as the Oneonta Tigers (NY-Penn League, Class A Short Season). Before the Tigers took over the team, they were a Yankees farm team.

The Norwich Navigators (Eastern League, Class AA) became the Connecticut Defenders, then moved to Richmond, VA and became the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

I had to look them up myself, I forgot that Norwich even had a team.  These guys don't get as much airtime (or buy as much advertizing) as the New Britain Bees and the Hartford Yard Goats (formerly New Britain Rock Cats), at least not in the radio and TV markets that I tune in to.
