USSM gathering: Felix v. Dan Meyer tonight
Don’t forget: tonight is King Felix Hernandez’ first home start for the Rainiers. We’ll be there, and we invite you to join us.
You’ll be seeing more than one top pitching prospect. Opposing Felix is Dan Meyer, the highly regarded young arm received by the A’s in the Tim Hudson trade. Meyer is off to a rough start this year, and hopefully the Rainiers can continue that trend — but this guy has a terrific future. In over 350 minor league innings, he’s struck out almost 10 batters per nine, posting a strikeout-to-walk ratio of more than four to one.
— The game is slated to begin at 6:05 p.m. Map to Cheney Stadium.
— We will be gathering at Engine House 9 for dinner beforehand. We should be there by 4 p.m. [Warning: embedded sound on the website, but you can find directions there.]
— Many thanks are due to Mike Curto for his assistance, and for scoring us five pairs of tickets for five lucky readers.
