There is something special about the new baseball season. The Portland Sea Dogs are playing their first game at Hadlock Field in Portland this evening at 6 against the New Britain Rock Cats.

The Portland Sea Dogs have seen many of its players make it to the major leagues.

In 2005, if you were at opening day for the Sea Dogs, you saw Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez and pitchers Jon Lester and Jonathan Papelbon. All those players have become stars in baseball.

This year’s team is chock full of pro prospects. Including 21-year-old pitcher Henry Owens, who’s first start of this season was a six-inning, rain shortened, no-hitter!

Catcher Blake Swihart is only 22 years-old and could be in Boston soon. Second baseman Mookie Betts was hitting .474 going into tonight’s home opener.

Hadlock Field has seen so changes since last season. The team has added a 17-by-53-foot video board, that’s three times larger than the old one. There is also a pitch type and pitch count board in right field.

The Sea Dogs also have a new manager this season, Billy McMillion, who played with the Sea Dogs in 1995.

Of course there is still Slugger and all that great ballpark food!
