This week, former Newark Bears infielder Paddy Matera was picked up by the Cleveland Indians organization and assigned to the Class-A Carolina Mudcats. The 25-year-old Toms River native began his professional career with the Newark Bears in 2010 and until this week, he had never played on an affiliated minor league team. For the past two seasons, he has been a Camden Rivershark.

I know I had a few readers who were fans of Paddy Matera, and I’d like to join them in wishing him luck. I hope he can take advantage of this opportunity.
