Just saw this press release. Seems like a great idea:

The Trenton Thunder, the Class AA affiliate of the New York Yankees, will host the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, the Class AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees, in a special pre-season exhibition game at Waterfront Park in Trenton on April 1 at 7:05 PM.

Tickets to this event will go on sale by phone, 609-394-3300, and online at starting Monday, January 21 at 9:30 a.m. Tickets will be the same as regular season Thunder games with seats in the Club and Pavilion Sections at $10 for adults and $9 for seniors (60+) and children (5-12). Terrace Sections will be $6 for adults and $5 for seniors (60+) and children (5-12).

This game will give fans the chance to see the top levels of the Yankees Minor League system while reuniting players from last season’s Eastern League Championship Thunder team who have moved on to the AAA level. The there will be a pre-game ceremony on the field to honor the members of the 2007 EL Championship Thunder team. The Waterfront Park gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for season ticket holders and 6:00 p.m. for the general public.

“This should really be a special night for Thunder and Yankee fans,” said Thunder General Manager/Chief Operating Officer Brad Taylor. “Getting the players from last year’s team together again for this game will be a thrill. It’s not too often we get guys to come back after they’ve moved on, so this gives fans a chance to see them united in Trenton one more time.”

“This game with the Thunder will showcase all the talent in the Yankee farm system,” said Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Executive Vice President / COO Jeremy Ruby. “This will really be a memorable night for the baseball fans in New York, Scranton and New Jersey.”

“This game will give the Thunder fans a great chance to honor so many of the players that made the 2007 season so memorable. The 2007 Thunder was a special group of very talented young men,” said New York Yankee Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations Mark Newman.
