"It's going to be really neat," said Travis Barbary, field manager of the Catfish.
"We played up there last year, but we're going to play the first four games in a new stadium."Barbary
has other reasons to be excited -- he
is originally from Easley, S.C., which is mere minutes away from the stadium.
"I know I got a lot of friends and family coming up for the game, and I already heard they're sold out for several of the first games," Barbary
And when Barbary
had a lot coming, he
"My wife called and said that we needed 36 tickets," Barbary
solution to the sold-out dilemma was to ask his
players to volunteer their two allotted tickets.
According to Barbary
, the Catfish
are a youthful team again this year and this initial road series will help set the tone for the season.
"I'm sure they're going to be out there playing with some nerves," Barbary
