This is the first Ducks opener in ten years that i’ve missed. I’m not even 100% who’s on the team right now, but i know we pulled in a couple late additions and we should have more pitching depth this season. middle infield is a question mark right now, but we’ll have to see how that plays out and who can step into short and second before Johnston gets back.
We should be able to surprise some people this season.
It’s our tenth anniversary. That’s a lot of seasons.
The Duck Pond is retired. The South Oakland Ducks of the North Side will not have a home field this season. I’ll miss it, but not really. bad hops on that field allowed me to hit over .400 for six of the last seven seasons and Spring View was host to some of the most dominating pitching performances in Ducks history. Hopefully i’ll have time to give it a proper send off at some point. I’m sure we’ll get a random rainout game scheduled there. the Ducks can’t thank the league enough for working with us to help keep the team swimming, and allow me to reuse all the sweet Baconator photoshops from a couple years ago. The Black Sox almost became the team to beat this season…
The TJ Morgan lead-South Oakland Ducks will open the season this Saturday 4/13
