Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is joy in Mudville - mighty Mason did NOT strike out.
Former Biscuits pitcher Chris Mason stepped to the plate for the first time as a professional Saturday. The biggest surprise is he didn't whiff.
Mason was 0-for-2 with a groundout to third and a flyout to right for the Binghamton Mets. His mighty cuts came against top Phillies prospect Kyle Drabek.
