Lugnuts Notes: Series at home against Rockford Cubbies

April 5 thru 8

  • Lugnuts 3 games, Cubbies 1

Still winter in Lansing; game temperatures never got higher than 45 degrees. I’m still trying to tie together names and numbers and positions and faces, so assessing the team is really quite premature. [Mark] Quinn had a terrific day on Monday, though; 2 hits (one a homer) and a great throw that cut down a baserunner at home plate. That should please my readers at Rice University; so should the Pat Hallmark fan club already forming on the outfield lawn.

Baseball’s here; can spring be far behind?
