The Winnipeg Goldeyes held a media day Friday to preview their upcoming season and get some informal practice on the field.
The Goldeyes have been stacking their roster for months now in preparation for their home opener on May 12 against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. The Fish will play a number of exhibition games to loosen up, beginning on May 3 and 4 against the Gary SouthShore RailCats on the road, before heading to St. Paul to face the Saints on May 5 and 6.
Fans will get their first look at this year’s squad during two exhibition games at Shaw Park on May 9 and 10 when the Goldeyes host St. Paul.
Training camp workouts begin today downtown — albeit under colder than normal temperatures. The public can watch from between 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. today and Sunday.
The Goldeyes have a training camp roster of 28 players signed for the 2011 season, including 16 pitchers and 12 position players.
