We are now within 100 days of Opening Day, which means we can really start looking forward to the upcoming season! Here are my top 3 anticipated home series of 2012:
July 20-22 vs. Miami Marlins- The new and improved Marlins are an intriguing team this year. They relocated to a new park, have new uniforms, and have some serious talent. Their lineup will include Mike Stanton, Jose Reyes, Hanley Ramirez, Logan Morrison, Heath Bell, and Mark Buehrle. It should be really fun to watch these guys play. The first day of the series is also free shirt Friday, and the 21st is a fireworks night.
June 8-10 vs. Kansas City Royals- It’s always cool to see some American League teams visit PNC Park, even though the Royals don’t have anyone special worth watching (other than Bruce Chen, that’s for you, Tripping Olney). June 8th is a free shirt Friday, and Saturday is a concert which also looks like it will be on FOX.
April 5, 7-8 vs. Philadelphia Phillies- Opening Day. Against the Phillies. ‘Nuff said. Also, the 7th is a fireworks night.
