Wally Backman Named Manager Of The Long Island Ducks

Many Mets fans were clamoring for Wally Backman to manage in NY. Their wish is coming true, just for a different team. The Long Island Ducks announced Wednesday that Wally will become the 6th skipper in franchise history. 

Via: LI DUCKS Backman replaces Kevin Baez, who signed with the Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am League earlier this week. 

“Kevin Baez is the winningest manager in Ducks history and our organization respects him tremendously,” said Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “Entering our 20th Anniversary Season, it is time for the Ducks to move in a new direction, and we are very excited about our future with Wally Backman.” 

Congrats to Wally and the Ducks in this new chapter. I try to hit at least a couple Ducks games a year with the fam. Affordable tickets and concessions, no bad seat, great atmosphere for the kids, free parking, the list goes on.

I have toyed with the idea of bringing The 7 Line Army out for an outing. We have a pretty stacked schedule this year, but maybe we should get the wheels turning....
