Two days away from opening day! I know everyone here is ready to get going and start playing some games that actually count. We'll be opening up with East Georgia College, a team we've never played before and that we know nothing about. I'm excited to see what they've got and to see our boys out there in the pinstripes against a real opponent.
Practice today should be solid. We got the tarp on before this last rain cell hit, so we'll be able to get some work done on the infield, and at the very least, we can break out the bats. The last day or two before you start is sort of like the last day or two before a prize fight. You want to keep moving, but you're really more about staying healthy, getting your body to feel good, and establishing that mind set.
Come out Friday at 2 or Saturday at 1 to see this year's Pirates take the field!
