Where can you see the best baseball right now, live and in person? Just 12 miles from the Lincoln Tunnel, that’s where, when the Seton Hall Pirates take on the Louisville Cardinals. Seton Hall’s program has given major league baseball such stars as Craig Biggio, Mo Vaughn, Rick Cerrone, John Valentin, Matt Morris, and a score of others, including former Brooklyn Dodger and TV’s The Rifleman, Chuck Connors! Expect a barnburner. As we go to press, the Hall’s Chris Spagnuolo is hitting .364 and teammate Matt Smedberg is at .350. The Cardinals have a pair of .393 hitters in Adam Duvall and Phil Wunderlich. Getting out to South Orange is easy: Take the NJIT to the South Orange station and walk a shade over half a mile up South Orange Avenue to the campus, or look for the Seton Hall Shuttle. The Village offers coffee shops and more than a dozen restaurants.
