Triple-A affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens, kicks off the season on Tuesday

The Triple-A season kicks off on Tuesday as the Toledo Mud Hens host the Rochester Red Wings at home, starting at 4:05. Ryan Kreidler, who has had a fantastic spring training down in Lakeland, will be one of the key bats in Toledo’s offense. We will have a Toledo Mud Hens preview for you tomorrow in additon to all the rest of the minor league affilates the rest of the week.

Similar to the Detroit Tigers, both the Erie SeaWolves and Lakeland Flying Tigers will start their seasons on Friday at home. The SeaWolves, the Tigers Double-A affiliate, will host the Akron Rubberducks, the Guardians Double-A team and Lakeland will host the Tampa Tarpons, the Yankees Low-A ball club. The Tarpons will have Rachel Balkovec at the helm. She is the first full-time female manager in the history of affiliated baseball at any level in the minors or the majors.

High-A West Michigan Whitecaps will start their season on the road over in Midland against the Great Lakes Loons, starting at 6:05. You can catch that game on WBBL 107.3 or on the Whitecaps Radio Network with Dan Hasty and Nate Wangler on the call.

Speaking of radio, here is where you can find the rest of the affiliates.

Toledo: Jim Weber and Matt Melzak

Erie: Greg Gania

Parker Meadows continues a good spring.

Thanks to Detroit Tigers Minor League Tracker, we got some clips of Parker Meadows still continuing to swing a hot stick.

Because of injuries last season, we didn’t get a chance to see a lot of outfielder Bryant Packard, but he looked healthy and ready to go on this hit.

The moment of Zen.

Completely non-baseball related as these moments can be anything going on in pop culture, I would like to present without commentary, the Final Four highlight clip between North Carolina and Duke. However you feel about these schools against what have done against Michigan or Michigan State, it was a classic game to watch.
