Opening Day is Here! Lineup & Game Notes
Well here we go, we made it to Appleton, WI and are ready to go with game #1 against the
Timber Rattlers this evening at 6:35 p.m. I’m trying a few new things this season and the first is to the right here created by our Marketing Manager Hannah Wolfe. We’ll keep you updated on miles traveled and other fun milestones throughout the season. If you want something specific kept track of let us know in the comments, we are looking to have some fun with it. I was joking that I’d track ounces of Mountain Dew I consume in season, and who knows, maybe I will (28 oz so far).
It is pretty cold right now at 36 degrees and no sign of the sun, They still have piles of unmelted snow in the berms and beyond the left field wall but the field looks as good as can be expected and the seats are cleared. There is a chance of rain but right now everyone seems to think we will start on time.
You can follow along in a variety of ways. If you want to listen live you can download the Peoria Chiefs App in Itunes, Android Marketplace or Google Play. If you prefer to listen on a PC or Mac, here is the link for both and then choose which type you have. You can also search Peoria Chiefs Network on Tune-In Radio. On Twitter follow @PeoChiefsGame for in game updates. And always on the road I’ll post some fun photos or behind the scenes videos if you follow Peoria Chiefs on Instagram or Snapchat.
Here is today’s lineup from Manager Joe Kruzel, and also today’s GameNotes.
Also new this year I hope to post after the game. We’ll have a comprehensive game recap on the website at PeoriaChiefs.com including a box score and if the internet at the hotel cooperates I’ll blog post about tonight’s game late this evening. Thanks for interacting with us on Social Media, on the blog and listening to the broadcasts!
