Game notes and Game one lineup April 22, 2011
I have not heard anything, so I am guessing that the game one lineup for the doubleheader today is the same as it was last night.
Nick Shaw 2B
Reggie Keen CF
Cody Hawn 1B
Jason Rogers LF
Mike Walker DH
Greg Hopkins 3B
Tyler Roberts C
Carlos George SS
Franklin Romero RF
That being said. The tarp for the field has some damage to it. It leaked a bit.
The Burlington grounds crew was just having a discussion with Aaron Nieckula, the manager of the Bees, about the topic of the infield. Or at least I am guessing that is what they were talking about since they were standing right by it and doing a lot of pointing. I’m pretty sure that Aaron was not regaling them with the tale of him sliding around the infield here when he was the manager of the Cougars and was having an animated discussion with an umpire a couple of years ago.
The condition of the infield may be moot. More rain is scheduled in the forecast…I’m sorry did I say rain? I meant thunderstorms are forecast for 6pm.
Tonight’s game notes are here. A few slight changes have been made: RattlersGameNotesApril22
Check back here, @CMehring, @TimberRattlers, or Rattlers Facebook for updates on the game status.
IMMEDIATE UPDATE: It’s raining…again. The tarp is going on the field…again. Now, excuse me while I look for a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. A live chicken would be too much…today. In a few days, we might have to talk that one through for a bit.
