Billy Hamilton wasn’t alive in 1983 when English New Wave/pop music band Kajagoogoo released its most successful single, “Too Shy,” but it’s appropriate for tonight’s baseball doubleheader at Community Maritime Park. Hamilton, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ fleet-footed shortstop, is two stolen bases shy of Vince Coleman’s Minor League Baseball record of 145 set, coincidentally, in 1983.
Hamilton could set the mark tonight when, weather permitting, the Blue Wahoos host two seven-inning games against the Montgomery Biscuits. The first contest is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Gates open at 4:30 p.m.
The twin-bill is necessary because Monday’s game was rained out.
