It was an incredible night for baseball.  The wind was calm and made for a very comfortable night at the ballpark.  It was fantastic to see the crowd out in support of Greensboro baseball.  The between inning games did not disappoint either.  The really do a great job of all around entertainment at the park.  Dollar for dollar, there is no better entertainment deal in Greensboro.

On to the game last night…

Hickory would score first with their second batter of the night, Lewis Brinson.  He would score off a wild pitch by Jarlin Garcia.  When it became the  Greensboro Grasshoppers turn to bat in the bottom of the first, we would see all three batters hit into the gloves of the waiting gloves of the Crawdads.  The second inning would prove to be a fantastic inning for the Hoppers.  They would hit two doubles in the inning causing three runners to cross the plate.  Thus making the score 3-1 Hoppers on top.  The Hoppers, nor the Crawdads, would score for the next three innings.  In the bottom of the sixth inning, there was a “bunch of singling going on…”  Austin Dean would be the first of eight Hoppers to touch first base.  Five of those Hoppers would cross the plate scoring for the good guys.  That would end up being our final score for the night.  8-1 HOPPERS WIN!

James Wooster, our returning Hopper from the 2011 Championship season pitched last night.  He would see three batters, and no strikeouts.  Jarlin Garcia was our starting pitcher seeing 18 batters and 7 strikeouts.  It was so good to be back in the ballpark and hearing the cracking bats and smell the hot dogs grilling.  It is a sure sign that the long nights of summer are upon us.  With the zingers being thrown from the mound, and the pop of the bat as it slams a homer, to the smile of that little childs face when he meets Guilford for the first time.  All of those reasons is why… IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A HOPPER!

So glad the season has started! We made it to our first game this past weekend. The weather was bad, but what can you expect in Michigan in April? All the best to the ‘Hoppers.

Have you guys seen any of the ACC Tourney there in Greensboro? I’ve caught a few games on TV, and they’ve been good ones.
