The 1988 and 1989 Jersey Blues baseball teams are a special group in more ways than one. They accomplished the amazing feat of playing in the College World Series two years in a row, and manage to celebrate their special bond every year since.

Over the years, the reunion has not been limited to just the ’88 and ’89 teams, they share the invitation, and some former players from the 1986 and 1990 teams have made appearances as well. In addition, the group maintains communication through an ongoing message board for those who live out of the area.

The following players listed below are those pictured for the most recent reunion at MJ’s Restaurant in Matawan, NJ.
