For Immediate Release
July 4, 2000

ESPN NEWS (Bristol) – Brady Anderson hit for the cycle to lift the Boo Birds to their seventh win in their last ten games and their second straight victory, 17-6, over the Chicago Mobsters on Tuesday afternoon. In what was the first of two games, before an electrified crowd of 25,287, more than 15,000 of whom jumped on the bandwagon and bought tickets just before the game.  They saw Anderson’s historic performance — he was the first Boo Bird player to hit for the cycle. “Coming in you’d say the odds were against us, but the way we’re swinging the bat now it doesn’t matter who we’re up against,” said Boo Birds manager Arnold Glaberson. “It’s going to be tough to shut us down.  Russ Ortiz pitched decently and the Boo Birds laid a 25-hit, seventeen-run whipping on Jeff Weaver and a cast of other Mobster pitchers.  But the story of the night, was Brady Anderson, who made history when he homered off reliever Jaret Wright in the eighth.  “I don’t really know what to think of it,” Anderson said. “I never really keep up with that stuff. I’ll be able to enjoy it more because we won both games today.” The 37-year-old center fielder, said “hitting for the cycle is a phenomenal thing for anybody, especially someone my age in the big leagues,  I’d probably do it a few more times if I could.”
