Hagerstown Suns lose opener 1-0

A scoreless pitchers' duel went to the 10th inning Thursday night in Eastlake, Ohio, as the Lake County Captains defeated the Hagerstown Suns 1-0 in the South Atlantic League opener for both Class A teams. An RBI single by Lake County shortstop Mark Thompson provided the winning run for the Captains.

My 16-year-old twin sons have been hired to work on the grounds crew for the Suns at Hagerstown's Municipal Stadium. The Suns have their home opener Monday against the Delmarva Shorebirds, (sponsored by Talk 103.7 FM). General admission tickets are $7 for adults, $6 for kids (12 and under) and seniors (60+).
The boys are really excited about their new job, so I'll be trying to follow the team's season here.


  1. Do the Suns still offer a discount on Sunday's to those families that have a church program.

    I always thought that was pretty cool.

  2. Jacksonville Suns won their opener, 7-4 against the Tennessee Smokies in the Southern League. Hoping to get to a few games this year before the oppressive heat starts in June!

    I especially like to go when we play the Montgomery Biscuits. Just love telling people what I'm doing that day!
