Gomer didn’t play in Bakersfield. Apparently he got food poisoning.
Tonight (Sat.), the Alaska Aces are in Ontario, a city just outside of L.A., and there’s no guarantee Gomer will suit up. Thousands upon thousands may be disappointed. Ontario is birthplace of overweight Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder. Fielder doesn’t even come close to looking like an athlete. He looks more like the guy who guards the front door at a Hell’s Angel clubhouse.
But I’m getting off the subject. Gomer is ill and didn’t dress for the Bakersfield game. At least he says he was ill.
