Opening Day Baseball, Game Notes & Lineup

Here we are, finally to opening day and looking forward to a fantastic 2015 season with the Peoria Chiefs…If the weather cooperates. The tarp has gone on and off the field all day and there is a chance of showers throughout the evening.

If we play, we get our first look at RHP Jack Flaherty, drafted by the Cardinals in the first round last June. Flaherty is the 26th 1st rounder out of the regular June draft in Chiefs history. This marks the second year in a row the Chiefs have received a Cardinals first round pick after having Rob Kaminsky last season. When including s the now defunct January draft and June supplemental draft plus the Supplemental First rounders in the current format, the tally is 38. Including the supplemental picks, the Chiefs have had a first rounder in each of the last five seasons and a first round pick from every year dating back to 2006 has come through Peoria.

 When he takes the mound tonight, Flaherty will become the fifth youngest Opening Day Starter in Chiefs history. Rick Ankiel beat Kane County on Opening Day 1998 at the age of 18 years, 265 days. Hall of Famer Greg Maddux beat Springfield in 1985 at the age of 18 years, 363 days, with 12 strikeouts over eight shutout innings. Amaury Telemaco was 19 years, 79 days when he lost on Opening Day 1993 and Ryan Acosta was 19 years, 152 days when he took a no-decision in 2008. Flaherty takes the mound tonight at the age of 19 years, 176 days.

Here’s a look at the lineup backing Flaherty tonight with a great graphic by our designer Allison Rhoades

Friday Lineup & Game Notes

Wow that was an adventure. 5 hr 6 min game (my longest), about 45 minutes to pack the bus. 20 minutes looking for any fast food place that was still open (and not drive thru only!) before we gave up and hit a truck stop gas station. They only had one guy working so it took the 30 of us a while to get chips, sandwiches, candy, soda, etc. Then a five hour bus ride home, which was much better cause of the win. Got back to the stadium at 6:10 but then we had to unload the bus cause that bus couldn’t travel again today with all the mileage on it yesterday. I walked into the apartment at 6:30 and the players were probably about 20 minutes later.

No BP here today we left at 3 for the Quad Cities.Warming up in field right now.

here is the lineup against the 4th place Bandits (1.5 games behind 2nd place Chiefs).

Cerda 2b
Rohan 3b
