The Long Island Ducks began their spring training this morning to kick off their 15th anniversary season at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip.
After a recent April Fool’s joke, in which the team reported to have signed Alex Rodriguez after his PED controversy, the Ducks are now getting ready for a fresh season.
LI News Radio Spoke with Former MLB player, and current Centerfield/Hitting Coach Lew Ford about the upcoming season —
“It feels great to get out and have a practice. Everybody’s excited for the first day. Right now were just thinking about what we have to do right now, just warming up but, you know, everyone’s goal is to win the championship again.”
The Ducks will start off the season on a road trip, the first game being April 25th. The first home game will be on May 2nd.
