Opening Day in Tacoma
With the M’s having an off day (and potentially not having any games for a few days – weather in Baltimore is terrible right now), you can still get your baseball fix as the Tacoma Rainiers kick off their season down at Cheney Stadium tonight at 7:00 pm.
Ryan Feierabend takes the hill against Greg Smith and the Sacramento Rivercats to kick things off, with R.A. Dickey going tomorrow night if you want to make it down to watch the knuckler.
Clement, Balentien, Tuiasasopo, and Chen give the team four prospects in the starting line-up, and guys like Norton, Reed, and LaHair should help keep the team competitive. If you’re into cold weather, head on down to the stadium and check out the Rainiers this weekend. If you’re more of the feel-your-extremities kind of person, you can stay home and listen live as Mike Curto reminds you why he’s the best baseball broadcaster in the Northwest.
And, for those wondering, there will be a new Future Forty coming tomorrow to celebrate the return of the minor league season.
