The Walla Walla Sweets open the season against Corvallis tonight at Borleske Stadium.
The Walla Walla Sweets kick off the 2012 season this evening against the Corvallis Knights, the defending West Coast League champions, at 7. The Sweets have only been practicing since May 26, and several players are still playing college ball or in classes, but Sweets manager J.C. Biagi is excited for the start of the season. "These guys have all been playing baseball for the better part of the year," Biagi said. "So we obviously want to get them reps, we want to see them swing, but it's as much for us as it is for them - allowing us the opportunity to see what we have and what we're working with and where they might fit in the lineup or the rotation."
