    Offerman charges mound, hits two with bat

    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Former All-Star Jose Offerman was arrested Tuesday night after charging the mound and hitting the pitcher and catcher with his bat during an independent minor league game.

    Bridgeport police said Offerman was arrested, but did not detail the charge. Police said he posted bond.

    Offerman, playing for the Long Island Ducks in the Atlantic League, homered in the first inning. The next inning, he was hit by a pitch from Bridgeport's Matt Beech and charged the mound with his bat.

    Offerman hit Beech in the hands and struck catcher John Nathans in the head.

    The game was delayed for about 20 minutes because of the melee. Offerman, Beech and Bridgeport manager and former major league pitcher Tommy John were all ejected.

    There was no immediate update on the condition of Beech or Nathans.

    Offerman batted .273 during his 15 seasons in the majors. He last played in the majors in 2005 with Philadelphia and the New York Mets. He was an All-Star in 1995 with the Dodgers and 1999 with Boston.

    Matt Beech? The Matt Beech? The same Matt Beech we had in our organization for a memorable month in '04 - at that time a mere six years after his last professional appearance? Wow!
    And, I see Offerman is with the Ducks. Is this the same Ducks with the one and only Danny Graves? Double wow!

    I saw Pete Jr. is on the team coached by Bud Harrelson. Wonder if they have had any scraps around the second base bag.

    BTW I thought Pete Jr. was serving time in prison. He must have received a short sentence.

    Those are the biggest hits Offerman has had since 2003.

    (Sound of crickets.)

    Graves, Lance Davis, Joe Valentine, Ed Yarnall

    The ex-Reds talent on display is overwhelming. To say the least.

    John Riedling also shows up in the pitching stats.

    Carl Everett at DH. Edgardo Alfonzo at Short.

    10 years ago, that would have been a pretty sweet team.

    Something that wasn't reported was that the Bridgeport manager was also hit in the leg by Offerman. As a result he's going to have Tommy John surgery on his knee.
