Two preseason practices are in the books and the team will continue to prepare for the exhibition opener next Wednesday @ GCS Ballpark against the Southern Illinois Miners at 11:35 AM.
The question everyone is asking..who looks good so far in spring training? Well, from what I've seen and gathered, a couple of guys really stand out. Keep in mind, nothing matters until we start playing games and I haven't been able to watch spring training very close yet (I will have better insight when the EXH games begin).
With that said, former Triad HS and Missouri State star Aaron Conway looked very good during BP on Thursday. He was a guy the coaching staff was high on entering camp, but I think he has really turned some heads in the first couple of days. Expect Conway to be an outfield starter and a top of the order guy.
Opening night is Friday, May 18th against the Joliet Slammers. Plenty more to come early next week with exhibition games beginning. Below is the exhibition schedule for the upcoming week. Go Grizzlies!
