Weather update from Little Rock – 11 a.m.
Good morning and happy Opening Day from Little Rock, Arkansas! The team arrived at the hotel at about 8:45 last night, which might be the earliest we get to a hotel all season before a game so the guys should be well rested. A bit of sour news greeted us all here when we woke up, as it has been steadily raining all morning. The good news is that it looks like things should dry up a bit this afternoon and, if the weather cooperates with the forecast, we should be able to play ball tonight at Dickey-Stephens Park. The great news is that we should have completely clear skies for each of the final two nights of this first series. I’ll keep you updated, but in the mean time start practicing your anti-rain dance in case things get a little dodgy later on.
