Winnipeg Goldeyes Home Opener (PHOTOS)

What a beautiful day it was for the first ball game of the 2010 season at Canwest Park on Thursday.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes unfortunately couldn’t pick up a win against the newest Northern League team, the Lake County Fielders, as the Fish suffered a 7-5 loss. The Fielders rattled the Goldeyes with five runs at the top of the ninth inning in front of 6,311 fans to win their first game ever as a team.

The two teams will meet again tonight for a rematch beginning at 7 p.m., and then again on Saturday and Sunday. On holiday Monday, the Goldeyes welcome Joliet to the park for a four-game set.
