According to the South Atlantic League schedule, the Suns have four games left in the first half, starting with a doubleheader against the Capital City Bombers at 5:05 p.m. today at Municipal Stadium. Then there's a three-day All-Star break ... but it's a little known fact that calendars lie.
The all-important second half of the season begins today for the Suns. The Bombers are Hagerstown's guinea pigs for a revamped roster as the Suns try to make a statement as a contender in the Northern Division.
"It says we still have four games left, but everything starts right now for us," Pino said after Thursday's game was canceled due to the weather. The game was rescheduled as part of a doubleheader with the first day of the third annual Play It Again Little League Home Derby to be contested between games.
