Online voting is underway until July 1st; fans are asked to select two players at each infield position, four outfielders, five pitchers, and one manager.

The top overall choices will be featured in a baseball card set that will be given away to the first 1,500 fans at the August 2nd game between the Thunder and the Reading Phillies.

The Thunder will open a three-game series against the Binghamton Mets tonight; all three contests begin at 7:05 p.m. The first 1,000 fans 18 and over will receive a Kevin Youkilis replica jersey tonight; tomorrow New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford is scheduled to appear for an autograph session and Thursday will feature a postgame fireworks display.

Who is your favorite all-time Trenton Thunder player?

I root for the New York Mets, even though that doesn't always reflect well on my judgement, and I've been writing about them and other baseball-related subjects at since 2007.

  1. Some great names. I’d probably go with:

    C Montero
    1B Tony Clark
    2B Cano
    3B Hillenbrand (gaudy stats)
    SS Nomar
    OF Gardner
    OF Mitch Jones (I remember his crazy power)
    OF Hyzdu
    SP Hughes
    SP Kennedy
    SP Joba
    SP Pavano
    SP Clippard
    Mrg Tony Franklin

      At first base, I want to see Clark & Pork Chop Pough, and I want Nomar at shortstop. I didn’t really go during the later Red Sox or early Yankee era, so I don’t have favorites from those teams.
