Here it is…
Tonight, Baseball Ross and I had the pleasure of being introduced to the 2013 Clearwater Threshers at the party held for season ticket holders.
It was a great time and I feel fortunate to get reacquainted with a few returning players as well as meet a few new ones. I recorded a video of their introductions so that you could enjoy it.
I like these guys. They’re obviously talented but they also seem to have quite a bit of personality.
There was one good thing to mention about the game tonight. The new edition of the Threshers Times came out with Jesse Biddle on the cover. I happened to run into Jesse and he was kind enough to autograph it for me. (It’s getting framed for my office in the new house!) He hadn’t seen the new cover and it was really cool to see the awe and surprise on his face when he saw that he was on the cover.
Adam Morgan was on the mound.
I won’t go into details. It was a rough game. Adam Morgan battled for six innings giving up 5. Colby Shreve came in in the seventh and held the Crabs scoreless. Then Garrett Claypool came in and the pain really began. 5 runs scored. Then Hector Neris came in and gave up another. It was a six run inning for the Crabs. Neris gave up another run in the ninth. Final score. 11-2 Stonecrabs. OUCH!
