IMG_3697 2 (1)Tuesday night will bring out an incredible array of emotions at TD Bank Ballpark, ranging from the unbridled joy of the franchise celebrating their very first game day as the Double-A affiliate, to sadness over the fact that the man who made it happen won’t be here to see it.

Plans to honor late Patriots owner and chairman emeritus Steve Kalafer tomorrow remain unclear, but one tribute did manage to get unveiled a day early.

As seen on Luis Gil’s jersey during his Zoom session with the media this afternoon, a special “SK” patch bearing Kalafer’s initials will be featured on every Somerset uniform this season.

Hopefully, they become a permanent fixture of the jerseys in seasons to come, and are just one of many celebrations of Mr. Kalafer, who sadly lost his battle with cancer on April 21.
