If you recognize any of those names, you might be a Memphis Redbirds fan.

Memphis is in town this weekend for the OKC Redhawks Home Opener, and our boys are spoiling all the fun for the Redhawks.  Two games down and Memphis has whupped up on OKC  10-6 on Friday night and 8-7 Saturday night.  Here are some photos from our seats in the stands for those of you who couldn’t make it to Oklahoma to cheer on the baby birds personally.

First up:  Saturday’s starting pitcher, Michael Wacha. (5 IP, 3H, 3R, 2ER, 1BB, 3SO, 1 HR, 4.0 ERA)

Today’s game time: 2:05 at the Bricktown Ballpark. Then Monday night the Redbirds finish up the series (and hopefully a sweep??) first pitch at 7:05pm.

Come help us cheer on the Baby Birds!  😉
