It was during his days as an infant crab when Buster fell in love with the game of baseball. His love for the game in its purest form- minor league baseball- led him to FirstEnergy Park when the Lakewood BlueClaws were founded.
Buster has represented the BlueClaws at every home game in franchise history. Though his consecutive-home game streak will exceed the 750-game plateau early in 2012, his enthusiasm for the game has never waned. His goal at all Lakewood BlueClaws home games is to lead the crowds in their unbridled passion for BlueClaws baseball; a goal that he meets on a nightly basis at the ballpark.
As a child, Buster spent many, lazy summer nights with family and friends at Barnegat Bay, and he grew up with many fond, crab-filled memories of his time spent at the Jersey Shore.
Between his love for baseball and his love for crabs, Buster was needlessly excited when he heard a minor league baseball team was coming to Lakewood. When General Manager Geoff Brown approached in 2001 Buster with an opportunity to represent the BlueClaws at all home games, Brown couldn't even finish making his offer before Buster accepted.
Since that day, the Lakewood BlueClaws and Buster have grown harmoniously in providing entertainment for every fan who walks through the turnstiles at FirstEnergy Park.
