Opening Day Preview: Phillies vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Happy Opening Day Folks

After that long cold offseason the regular season is finally upon us, I was starting to get  little bit loopy and bored without baseball.

The Philadelphia Phillies open up their season today against the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:35 Pm Eastern Time at PNC Park, it is one really beautiful ballpark as you overlook the Steel City.

Roy Halladay will make his tenth straight opening day start this afternoon. The Phillies offense will face 33-year-old Lefty Eric Bedard who has a career record of 56-50 in his eight season in the major leagues.

This game is on PHL 17 for Tv and on 1210 WPHT for radio.

The Phillies over the years have not played well at this ballpark but let’s hope that changes this weekend.

The weather is going to be pretty lovely all weekend long in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, there is 0 percent chance of rain on today and Saturday with a 30 percent chance of rain on Sunday. The high today will be 56 degrees around game time. Beautiful day for opening day baseball in Pittsburgh.
