  • A fun and crazy day of baseball ends in dramatic fashion at the 2015 Eastern League All-Star Classic Presented by Sullivan Tire! Festivities started around 3pm at Hadlock Stadium, home of the Portland Sea Dogs. It was an autograph seekers goldmine as players and coaches from both the East and the West team signed autographs before the game. Thousands of fans lined up waiting with anticipation until it was there time to talk to players and have their ball signed. After batting practice and plenty of autographs, an exciting homerun derby took place. A wide variety of prospects took their turns swinging for the fences, but no one thought much when Dan Gamache took his turn. Gamache of the Altoona Curve, Pittsburg Pirates Double A affiliate, had never hit more than six homeruns in his short minor league career. Gamache surprised everybody with his power as he was able to win the derby, hitting four homeruns in the final round on just nine swings.

    The All-Star introductions took place around 7pm with the starters from the East walking from Sky-Box seats down the rows of fans to “Field of Dreams” music and onto the field, fans applauded and youngsters stood awe struck trying to high five the players as they went by. Red Sox catcher and Sea Dog Alumni Blake Swihart threw out the ceremonial first pitch, then proceeded to walk around the stadium shaking each fan’s hand as he passed by. He even came up and said hello to the Sullivan Tire employees who attended the event!

    The East got off to an early lead as Sea Dog shortstop Marco Hernandez singled to lead the inning off and eventually scored on a fielder’s choice. The home team was able to tack on three more runs in the second inning sacrifice fly by Trenton’s Jake Cave, and a two run blast by Hernandez!

    The gritty West team was able to manufacture 4 runs through a variety of timely base hits and walks to tie the game up after nine innings. To avoid straining the pitchers and risking injury in extra innings, the game was decided in a very unique tie breaker. The announcer informed a delighted crowd that the game would be decided by a home-run derby! Each team would select three players to take one swing each, and whichever team hits the most homeruns wins! If none of the three players hit a homerun it would result in a sudden death swing per swing finale, similar to a soccer shootout. It took 11 rounds, but Reading’s Brian Pointer was able to hit a walk-off home run to win the game for the East which sent his teammates and the crowd into a frenzy!

    A postgame firework show took place after the game where it was announced that hometown Marco Hernandez won MVP of the All-Star game!

  • As you may know, we’re big fans of baseball here at Sullivan Tire. This summer, for the second year in a row, we took our love of baseball to a whole new level by hosting A Day at the Ball Park for our employees and their families.

    All employees who have been with the company for 5 or more years were invited to spend a day with the Pawtucket Red Sox, Portland Sea Dogs, or the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Employees and their family members were treated to a delicious, catered BBQ lunch before each game.

    At each game, a Sullivan Tire employee had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. At the Portland Sea Dogs game it was Leo Rossignol, Manager of our Biddeford, ME location. “I couldn’t make it last year, so it was nice to be able to attend this year.” At the Fisher Cats game it was Marvin Robbins, manager of our Newington, NH location and his daughter, Madison, that threw out the first pitch. At the Paw Sox game it was Joe Comeau, of our Marlborough, MA retail location.

    Each day at the park held a fun surprise; Daniel, Emma and Roger Pearson, who attended last year’s Day at the Park in New Hampshire, had a great time with their family at the event.  They loved the food (particularly the mac n cheese) and were confident the Paw Sox would win.  Their faith paid off, as Daniel ended up catching a home run ball, and the Paw Sox went on to defeat the Bulls 7 – 4, earning a season-high fifth-consecutive win!

    The weather was perfect for each Day at the Park, and a great time was had by all!

    I had an unexpected need for auto repair service today. John at the Plymouth, MA location was courteous and helpful and expeditiously arranged for care for my car and transportation for me. The driver of the shuttle, Ed, was extremely friendly and kind. I so much appreciate the help they provided during my extremely stressful day. Thank you so much for all of your help today, John, Ed, and Sullivan Tire!

    Just wanted to offer my compliments to your staff at the Sullivan Tire in Stratham, NH. I’ve had a faulty tire sensor and had to visit a number of times. Each visit, I’ve been met with great customer service. A specific thank you to Joe and Gregg for taking the time to complete a thorough repair, offer me a full explanation, and do it all with a smile.
