Mitchell: Almost Time
The Clippers have been working out at Huntington Park in preparation to open the season tomorrow night against the Louisville Bats. The roster will be finalized soon, but from the looks of things, the Clippers will start the year with every player having at least some Triple-A experience and as many as 19 guys who have played in the Major Leagues. Mike Sarbaugh will once again be at the helm with Ruben Niebla as pitching coach for the 2nd year in a row and Phil Clark joining the Clippers as hitting coach.
The Meet the Team party will be tonight at Life Styles Community Pavillion from 5:00-8:00 with players signing autographs and mingling with the fans. That’s just the start of a great opening week.
For Opening Day tomorrow, the gates will open early at 5:00 for Happy Hour food and drink specials. Get there early because at 6:30, fans will be selected to form a human tunnel the players and staff from last year will parade through to receive their 2011 Championship rings! Make your way to the stands on the outfield side of the 1st base dugout if you want to be a part of the tunnel.
Don’t forget to get your tickets to the Hash-tag Suite for opening day! There are still some tickets remaining to gather with your fellow social networking aficionados and keep your friends and followers up to date!
