The ‘Birds are Back in Town
Today marked the second year of another successful ‘Bird Watching event as fans gathered at AutoZone Park to watch the Redbirds practice in preparation for Opening Day April 7 at 7:05 against the Oklahoma City RedHawks.
Fans were able to get autographs from players while enjoying complimentary nachos, hot dogs, and soda as they watched the team take batting practice and infield.
“Thank you to all the fans who came out today for our 2nd annual ‘Bird Watching event. We hope this event got everyone as excited as we are to open the 2011 season on Thursday.” said Ben Weiss, General Manager of the Memphis Redbirds.
