For the game Strasburg threw 94 pitches with 65 of them going for strikes. He also struck out every player in the starting lineup. Not a bad start.

Well I am writing the post that I wanted to put up last week today. It was quite an interesting week last week that had me in Lakeland on Wednesday and Saturday, Dunedin and Daytona on Sunday.

I normally do not like to post photos like this because you can not see his face. But I do like how his bat broke and the ball and bat was still in the photo.
Well that is all for tonight I need to get back to tagging and uploading photos.
The weather was perfect for opening night and there was a large crowd on hand an hour before the game even started. It was good to see some of my good friends that I had not seen since last season and I am happy that baseball is back. I do not have a lot of time for this post today but I have uploaded a few photos from the game below.
