Last night I attended the very first Black Bears game. The best surprise was getting to see Tyler Glasnow. He is recovering from an ankle injury and was sent to Morgantown for a rehab assignment. Glasnow is the Pirates top prospect. He only threw about 35 pitches with most being fastballs. He hit 97 on the gun.
As for the game it was a rough night for the Black Bears. They got destroyed by the Mahoning Valley Scrappers (minor league team names are the best).
The weather was very poor for the game as it rained the majority. Thankfully the new stadium is a sports turf so field conditions were actually pretty good.
Overall it was a great experience. I'm looking forward to getting to more games this year. It will be fun to keep track of all the players that come through.
Thanks for reading!
