Lima Time in Long Beach
It's near the end of May and a brand new season is about to begin for the Long Beach Armada of the Golden Baseball League. Tonight is opening night as the Armada face off against the Calgary Vipers. Yes, they have Baseball in Calgary.
What makes this game so special, you ask? Well, starting for the local team is one of my favorites and probably the most animated pitcher since Mark Fidrych, Jose Lima.
I love this guy. He's loud and a bit obnoxious, but he exudes passion for the game.
The game starts at 6:05 at Blair Field. If I can get out of work in time to make the commute then I'm there otherwise, maybe, I'll tune in to the live broadcast online here.
Here is a video of Lima pitching during training camp.
