Well...seems the Surf are going the same way as the Nashua Pride:
To the Can Am league.
Last nite could very well have been the Surf's last Atlantic League contest.

It was a good Atlantic League run. A lot of good players like Juan Thomas, WildThing, Hector the First Baseman who loved to trash talk. Thanks for the memories. The Surf won the first Atlantic League Championship back in '98.

Props to Jeff Ball and this year's team for an exciting season.

Heres hoping the BarnStormers beat the BlueFish for the 2006 Atlantic League Crown!

I have always enjoyed going to the Surf games in Atlantic City ever since their very first season in the league. To me that's way more enjoyable than going to the beach or the casinos. But now that I have a hometown team (Lancaster) I have more to cheer for! It was always so hard to see the lack of fan support in AC but the staff and everyone was always so friendly and helpful. I will miss games there...

It's too bad this has to happen. I've always enjoyed Surf games and they put a competitive team out there every single year. On the other hand, Go Bluefish!!

It's a shame they're leaving the AtL. I was really hoping we'd have a season without the Road Warriors. It looks like York will replace Atlantic City and then hopefully in 2008 So. Maryland will replace the Road Warriors. It really looked like the AtL could expand to 10 teams with the additions of York & So. Maryland. Unfortunately, So. Maryland is having major delays with it's stadium and now Atlantic City is likely leaving for a different league. We could have had 10 teams in 2007:

Long Island
Road Warriors

Atlantic City
So. Maryland

and in time the Bergen CliffHawks would replace the Road Warriors.
