Park makes Major League debut
One of Trenton's highly-touted prospects, 3B/1B Enrique Park, made his first ML start one game after making his ML debut. Park's first ML at-bat was a pinch-hitting appearance, as he pinch-hit in the final game of the final game of the Norfolk series (for the record, he lined out to second for starting pitcher Vernon Coscarat in the 7th inning of the game- the Traffic went on to win in the 10th). The next night he started at 1B at Atlanta, going 0-2 with 2 walks in the Traffic's 7-6 win. Park was quoted as saying after the game, "I'm glad to be here with the big club. I know we're in the thick of a playoff race, and I just want to help out however I can." Trenton's manager said he has no plans to move Park to third base for now (due to the presence of Paxton Coleridge), but that could eventually be the plan.
