Baseball has arrived.
The first game of spring is at 1:05 p.m. between the Phillies and the University of Tampa.
The lineup card (tweeted here by the Phillies) looks oddly like something we could see around, say, 2019:
- CF Roman Quinn
- SS JP Crawford
- RF Dylan Cozens
- 1B Rhys Hoskins
- LF Nick Williams
- C Jorge Alfaro
- 2B Scott Kingery
- 3B Hector Gomez
- DH Andrew Pullin
Well, close to that. Gomez is a non-roster invitee who will get a tryout for the bench.
Anyway, this looks a lot like what Lehigh Valley will showcase in 2017, sans maybe Kingery and Gomez.
Either way, baseball! Mark Leiter Jr. is on the mound for the Phils. Game can be streamed here.
