Time to hear those favorite two words of mine this time of the year.
The Lexington Legends, one of the Houston Astros Single-A teams, open their season tonight. There is a chance of rain so I may get wet. Hopefully it won’t rain the game out. It rained on us some last year, but they are expecting more rain this year. They went the entire first season back in 2001 without a single rainout on their way to winning the SAL championship. The series was cut short due to 9/11, but Lexington was up about 2 or 3 games to none so they were well on their way. I haven’t missed a home opener yet so rain hold off please. Of course if it does rain, tomorrow’s game doesn’t count as the home opener. 🙂
Roger Clemons’ son Kerry is on the roster this year and there is a chance if Roger resigns with Houston that he will pitch a game or two in Lexington. He is supposed to be in town to work out with his son while he is playing in Lexington. Might get to see the Rocket pitch sometime in May.
