And in 1994, minor league baseball stormed into Trenton with the arrival of the Trenton Thunder and the construction of beautiful Mercer County Waterfront Park stadium. In this fascinating chronicle of the first three seasons of the Double-A Thunder franchise, Trenton Times sportswriter Christopher T. Edwards provides an insider's up-close-and-personal view of the people and events that have made the Thunder one of the most popular minor-league teams in the country.
