SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The South Plainfield Tigers 2-1 victory over Perth Amboy in the 12th inning was a game for the ages. The catch by Chris Born to double up Perth Amboy for the win, and the eight and two-thirds innings by Chris Shine will be glory day’s stories for the rest of their lives.

As the Tigers celebrated their victory on the baseball diamond TAPinto wondered haven’t we seen these boys before? Well sure enough, our editing staff was able to go into the TAPinto archives and found interviews of Mr. Shine and Mr. Born from the summer of 2013. They were planning a trip to Cooperstown.

We at TAPinto thought our readers may want to hear what they had to say five years ago. Who knows, maybe someday we will be interviewing them in Cooperstown again.
