This past weekend was officially Opening Weekend for the 2016 Babe Ruth season. The AAA Rockies started out on Saturday morning versus the AAA Dodgers. The Rockies held off a possible comeback and won the game 7-5. Excellent pitching by both Rockies pitchers kept the Dodgers in check. In the afternoon, the AA Rockies clobbered the AA Dodgers 14-2 in 5 innings. A good start all around.
Sunday was a great day for the Opening Ceremonies, temps were in the low 20’s. It seems that in previous years, it is either freezing or raining, or both.
Teams are back at it this week, both teams against the Dodgers again. Sort of odd to play them back to back, but what the heck.
Hopefully the weather will stay nice – it is May after all.
