It may not be opening night at the Corn Crib but I still had a couple of short interviews to share with you from that night. It was a great game and this bat boy is just one of the thousands of people who enjoyed it. Fans will get to see the team in action at the Corn Crib again this week.
The Normal CornBelters, presented by the Illinois Corn Farmers, will host the second home stand of their inaugural season at the Corn Crib from Monday, June 14 through Saturday, June 19. They will play the Florence Freedom on June 14, Tuesday, June 15 and Wednesday, June 16. Following, they will host the Evansville Otters on Thursday, June 17, Friday, June 18 and June 19. All games begin at 7 p.m. and gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets are still available for each of the six games!
One of the people I met was Normal CornBelters Field Manager Hal Lanier. Hal says the Corn Crib is a little different from what you normally see in professional baseball. He says the fans will see some very exciting baseball and we sure did on opening night. You can listen to my interview with Hal here (mp3).
I also spoke with Normal CornBelters Reliever Steve Raburn. Steve says that “at first it was a little different” in referring to the team’s support from Illinois corn growers. You can listen to my interview with Steve here (mp3).
