I ask you, what's better than watching a baseball game with the family and downing a hot dog or two? The national pastime is here, it's baseball season! Our own Portland Sea Dogs are opening the season tonight at 6 p.m, at Hadlock Field.Boston Red Sox shortstop  Stephen Drew, will be starting for Portland. He is recovering from a concussion he suffered on March 7 during spring training. The Sea Dogs' roster also features pitcher Daniel Bard, who pitched for the Red Sox last season.

Tickets are still available, so bundle up and take it all in, baseball is back!

And while you're waiting for the game, check out how the Sea Dogs' mascot Slugger got in shape for the season!
