According to Atlantic League Baseball, the Newark Bears have signed noted pinch-hitting enthusiast Marlon Anderson to a contract. He joined the team last night.
Anderson has spent all or part of the last 11 seasons in the big leagues. He’s appeared in 1,147 games with the Phillies, Rays, Cardinals, Mets, Nationals and Dodgers. He’s a career .265 big league hitter.
I wonder if the Bears hired him to play for them or to be their mathematician.
