Bird Watching


Yesterday was our annual “Bird Watching” event at AutoZone Park. The event allows the fans the opportunity to check out the team and get to know its players and coaches at their first practice.

Overall, a great turnout and an even better practice.

The Redbirds open the season at Oklahoma City on April 5, but return for the first game of 2012 at AutoZone Park to host Oklahoma City on Friday, April 13. Make sure to come by for the home opener for the unveiling of the new 60×60 HD video board!

Here are some sights from Bird Watching:

Shortstop Ryan Jackson fielding ground balls.
