Don’t know what you’re going to do tonight since the Reds had a day game? Oh, I think I can find something…like checking on on the Reds minor league affiliates tonight. There are four more Opening Days to enjoy!
First of all, there’s the Triple-A Louisville Bats managed by Rick Sweet. The Bats open at home against the Toledo Mud Hens, affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
The Carolina Mudcats, the Double-A team, also opens at home. Manager David Bell and the Mudcats will face the Mobile Bay Bears from the Arizona Diamondbacks organization.
The Bakersfield Blaze, managed by Ken Griffey, Sr., begin their season on the road against the Visalia Rawhide of the Diamondbacks system.
The Dayton Dragons and manager Delino DeShields will be hosting the Bowling Green Hot Rods from the Tampa Bay Rays farm system. Check out our page “The Farm” for info regarding a TV schedule for the Dragons.
Also, unless I’ve completely lost my mind, you can get a live audio stream for all the games for all the farm teams. Some even have a link for the iPhone and iPad as well. Simply go to this link (it’s a page on the Bats site) and scroll until you see your team (Louisville, Carolina, Bakersfield, Dayton and Billings, whose season begins April 20th). Yes, they are all listed here!
Also, check out our page “The Farm” and find details about the TV schedule for the Dayton Dragons. If you are unsure about availability in your area, check DaytonDragons.com for further details.
