Tonight is the first home game of the season for the Northwest Arkansas Naturals and should kick off another great year of Texas League baseball. The six-game homestand that starts tonight puts the Naturals against the the league champion Midland RockHounds over the next three days and then they’ll take on the Frisco RoughRiders early next week.
Let’s make sure the Naturals know all of Northwest Arkansas wants their season to get off to a great start by winning these first few early-season home games. Championships are won one game at a time, and the summer just feels better when there’s a winner in our midst.
Finally, let us not forget that Arvest is a great baseball venue, but it’s also a place for those interested in people watching and all the other activity. The photograph by Naturals team photographer John Owen during the 2013 season reminds us that the fireworks shows are impressive, and they happen regularly throughout the season.
Best of luck to the Naturals!
