Minor League Baseball’s Opening Day is set for next Thursday, April 6th. Before the lights come on, Brandon and I sat down to introduce (or re-introduce) ourselves, chat about the Generals’ new affiliation with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and highlight what we enjoy about the early part of the baseball year. Jeff Wiser, a.k.a. @OutfieldGrass24, was our first 2017 guest on the Generally Speaking Podcast, and he brought some color to a lot of the ideas we had about the new affiliation.

In the past week, Brandon has also been interviewed locally by WBBJ-TV and ESPN Radio 96.5. You can hear his radio segment via the link below.

The team arrives on Sunday, April 2nd. Fans can get an early look at this year’s squad when they play an exhibition against Jackson State CC on Tuesday, April 4th. There will also be a Meet The Players event held on Wednesday, April 5th at Englewood Baptist Church, beginning at 6pm. The season is almost here, and we can’t wait for you to meet all the new faces that will light up Jackson in 2017!
