Team Notes vs Smokies



Bauers give Gotta rabbit ears before the game
CAST THE NET
The nets are coming. Rumors are again going around that next year will bring extended nets to Riverwalk. The feeling is that it will cover the fans behind the dugout, but not the dreaded foul pole to foul pole screen that some parks have installed.



POKEMON GO SIGHTED
Pokemon go comes to riverwalk on sunday.
If there weren't enough ways to distract fans from flying objects leaving the playing field, we can now add this one to the pile. Hopefully it is a between innings promotion!


BIGCASEDAWG TO BULLS
Gillaspie, Adames, Wong perpare for a June tilt
Casey Gillaspie was promoted to Durham, the first base position will be handled by Jake Bauers and possibly Patrick Leonard. Casey is all over the Southern League leaderboard and likely deserved to move up.

CHAPMAN SAVES GAME
Jaye Chapman warms on Thursday
Brady Williams may have his new closer in Jaye Chapman, who shut the door for his first Biscuits save on Thursday. Fans noted that Chapman is similar to craig kimbrel's delivery.


BYOB
The upcoming season ticketholder BP is byob, bring your own bat - a couple aluminum bats will be available, but if you want wood you bring it!


BRUMMIE CLUBBIES BAD
I was told the bham clubhouse is great, the clubbies sometimes not so. The Brummies don't make visiting teams look forward to visiting the park.

You can be sure the guys love the commute to the Barons park, adding about ten hours of bus time to the schedule that week.


THE FORCE IS STRONG
Saturdays Star Wars theme night will have a cast of over 20 characters.
A light saber bat signed by the team will be raffled.
I can not divulge any more than that.

SCHREIBER TO CRABS
Beleaguered closer Brad Schreiber was sent to Port Charlotte to recover from his bout of suck-itis. Schreib just couldn't find a way to miss bat this season, some asked if he was hurt or having issues but he never appeared injured - just hit-able.

\m/ IRON MAN \m/
Brent Honeywell's warmup/intro music is Black Sabbath's Iron Man.
I love old Sabbath and always think its cooler to see guys warm up to something heavy, too many players music choice sounds like a boyband. I want opposing teams to think our team is back there chewing on metal shards waiting for a chance to clobber them. Not practicing their pop and lock routine.
