Honkers Double-Header & Fireworks Tonight
The great Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks loved baseball so much that he coined the famous quote "Let's play two" in reference to playing a double-header. The Rochester Honkers will play two tonight as they host the Mankato MoonDogs at Mayo Field. A Fireworks Extravaganza will follow the second game.
The Honkers are 5-2 on the season, just a game behind Waterloo in the North Division standings. Mankato is 3-5 and are 3.5 games back. The two teams were supposed to open the season at Mayo Field on May 26th but that game was rained out and rescheduled as part of a double-header tonight. Both games will be 7 innings. Game one will begin at 5:05pm with gates opening up at 4pm.
