The Omaha Storm Chasers got in a quick practice Wednesday at Werner Park before hitting the road for Round Rock and their Pacific Coast League opener Thursday night.
Over the past two seasons, some of the top talent in all of minor league baseball played in Omaha. This year, no top 10 prospects are on the roster, but there are still plenty of familiar faces back from last year’s American North Division championship squad.
“We don't have the huge name prospects, but we have a lot of prospects here,” said manager Mike Jirschele. “We are just waiting for an opportunity to send them to the big leagues. Hopefully, nothing happens up there and they get off to a good start, they stay healthy and we keep this club."
"If you look at the roster we have a good amount of big league time on this team,” said outfielder Anthony Seratelli. “Even guys who don't have the time like myself are guys that have been around the game for a while. We don't have as many young guys as last year, which will probably make us better."
The Storm Chasers home opener is 7:05 p.m. Friday, April 12th against Nashville.
