Welcome to the Trenton Makes Blog, a site that will take an inside look, not only at the 2011 Trenton Thunder baseball season, but at the unique experiences (travel, tarping, talkin’ baseball) of being involved in Minor League Baseball. The Trenton Makes Blog (the title pays homage to the Lower Trenton Bridge, which is just up the Delaware River from Waterfront Park and has lettering across it that reads, “TRENTON MAKES, THE WORLD TAKES”) will be the place to find everything you need to know about Thunder baseball. From comic strips (like the one below), to podcasts, to game notes, to in-depth articles, to audio interviews …trentonmakesblog.wordpress.com will provide color-commentary to the trentonthunder.com‘s play-by-play!
The Thunder open their season on Thursday, April 7, at 6:35 PM ET from Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, NH. Last year’s opponent in the first round of the playoffs, the Thunder will try to start the season on a winning note against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Toronto Blue Jays). Tune-in to the game on the new flagship radio station for the Thunder, 91.3 FM WTSR! The game will also be broadcast on WBCB 1490 AM and at trentonthunder.com.
After a seven game road trip to start 2011, the Thunder return home to Trenton on April 14 to take on the Harrisburg Senators (Washington Nationals) at 7:05 PM.
Happy Opening Day!
