Grizzlies Begin 2013 Season Friday Night In Ohio

Hello all!  After months of waiting, it is finally here.  Opening Day is upon us and the Gateway Grizzlies are in Avon, OH this weekend as they take on the Lake Erie Crushers.  Can't wait to get things

started Friday night!

The Opening Day roster is set of course.  Grizzlies manager Phil Warren put together a competitive spring training and the skipper feels like he has a great group of 24 players ready for battle Friday.  12 pitchers and 12 position players make up the roster.  Here's the rotation..

  RHP Tim Brown
  RHP Tucker Jensen
  RHP Ja'Vaun West
  RHP Chris Enourato
  LHP Gregg Downing

The position players consist of numerous guys who can play different positions..there are also a handful of switch hitters.  While the Opening Day lineup isn't set yet, Warren stuck with a consistent lineup during the preseason and I think it's safe to say we will see Johnson, Frias, McClendon, Flores, Hernandez, Butler, DeJesus, Myers and Guthrie in the starting lineup no particular order.

The closer job belongs to veteran RHP Richard Barrett to start the season.  Richard closed 17 games in 2012.

Friday night is the night.  Tim Brown will get the start for the Grizzlies in the season opener.  The St. Louis native went 12-2 last season and is poised for another great year.

I'll have the call Friday and all season long on the Grizzlies Radio Network and online at  Talk to you Friday on the radio.  Go Grizzlies!
