The Watertown Rapids open up their collegiate league baseball season on the road at Mohawk Valley Friday night.
Their home opener is Saturday at the Alex Duffy Fairgrounds against the Utica Blue Sox. It's 7 News night with the first 200 folks receiving a 7 News Frisbee.
The Rapids are arriving in Watertown for the upcoming season. A majority of the team was working out at the fairgrounds Tuesday in preparation for the Perfect Game League season.
It's a process for Coach Dave Anderson. He knows what he has on paper,but now he has to get to know the players in person.
"We're going to have nine innings of full baseball, really get to see what we have to work with," the coach said, "then the next few days we'll start fine-tuning a couple things, kind of set our signs, get everything rolling in that aspect, and we'll be ready to go Friday night."
