My first goal for Thursday’s activities was to make sure that I was on time for the bus leaving to South Bend, so I wouldn’t have to be the first fine of the year. Once that was taken care of, my teammates and I began to think about baseball, after all this was our first game. Arriving in South Bend I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Silverhawks (by the way, what is that?) since we hadn’t seen them in the spring. My first impression was made after I had to pay four dollars for a hot dog before the game. Where’s that Miller High Life guy when I really need him. My second observation was that I didn’t see a fan in the stands until 20 minutes before game time. The weather wasn’t great but it was opening night and I expected a little more. Then, the first inning came and went and we had a 10-0 lead. This came as somewhat of a surprise but surprises can be good. I have to tip my hat to our starter, Ramon Garcia, as well. It isn’t easy to keep your routine and mindset when your team puts up runs like that but he pitched like he was getting paid. Aside from that, the bullpen vibe was really good and everyone is looking forward to a fun season.
Everyone was a hitting star in this game. Casper Wells had the only homerun for the White Caps with a two run blast in the first inning.
