BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) – Batter Up! NBC News suspended Brian Williams for 6 months without pay and now the Bridgeport Bluefish are stepping up to the plate offering the Nightly News Anchor a six month media internship to work for the baseball team writing game recaps.

Williams is said to be a Connecticut resident and since he’s being benched for now by the peacock network the Bluefish want to suit him up to be part of their team.

The Bluefish staff members are reportedly huge fans of Williams and are firm believers in second chances. They don’t seem to be concerned about the controversy surrounding his false reporting of claiming to be on a chopper shot down in Iraq. In fact, they hope the seasoned anchor will bring the team good luck. Bluefish general manager Jamie Toole says “With his reporting style, we may even win a few of those games.”

The baseball team is offering to pay Williams a stipend of $500 and hopes he sees this as a great opportunity in sports reporting.

No word on if this offer has gotten to Williams. We’ll have to wait and see if he’s willing to play ball.
