Forgot to post this the other day, but better late than never…we’ve released the 2011 BlueClaws schedule (click here to view as a pdf file).
Some things to keep in mind:
- Opening Day, on April 7th, we will raise the 2010 South Atlantic League Championship banner. This will be the third banner going up!
- April 25-29: a five game series against Charleston, the Yankees affiliate.
- April 30-May 3: a four game series against Savannah, the Mets affiliate.
- Memorial Day: 12:05 pm
- July 20-22: a three-game series with Greenville, a rematch of the last two South Atlantic League Championship Series
- That Greenville series could also feature former St. Rose pitcher Anthony Ranaudo’s return to the Jersey Shore. He played three years at LSU and was the 39th pick in the 2010 draft. He signed for $2.5 million on the deadline. This year, Kannapolis brought Monmouth U RHP Ryan Buch to Lakewood and perhaps we’ll see Ranaudo this year.
Ticket packages will go on sale on Monday.
