Ambassadors Play First Exhibition Game

May 13, 2003 - Canadian American League (Can-Am) - Allentown Ambassadors News Release

The Allentown Ambassadors played the team's first exhibition game today and lost to NCAA Division III tournament bound DeSales University 9-5 in eight innings.

Due to the Ambassadors wanting to see as many of their pitchers as possible and DeSales upcoming tournament appearance, Ambassador pitchers pitched for both teams. The Ambassadors used ten pitchers in all, with Carlos Gonzalez and Nolan Fry both pitching two scoreless innings. Fry, who the Ambassadors invited to spring training following the team's open tryout, had 4 strikeouts and gave up only one hit in his two innings pitching to DeSales.

Gonzalez started the game, pitching against the Ambassadors, and struck out two allowing no hits in his two innings. Blake Boyer, another invitee out of the tryout, pitched a scoreless inning with one strikeout to the Ambassadors.

On the offensive side, Dan Singletary had an RBI single to score the Ambassadors' first run in the fourth inning. Jorge Diaz, batting in the leadoff spot, had two walks and a stolen base. The Ambassadors showed their rust in the field, committing several errors that led to DeSales runs.

The Ambassadors' next exhibition game is Thursday against the New Jersey Jackals in New Jersey. The next home game is this Sunday against the Russian National Team. Game time is 2:05 and tickets are $2 at the gate. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The game will also be televised on Service Electric TV-2. The Ambassadors' regular season begins with the home opener on May 22nd at 7:05 against the Bangor Lumberjacks. For ticket information, call (610) 437-6800.
