Holly Madison, of prior “Girls Next Door” fame will take the bump and throw the first pitch of the game commemorating her very own bobble head night.
The Las Vegas 51’s are currently leading the PCL South with a record of 4-1 winning all of their opening homestand games with the exception of a 2-4 loss to the Salt Lake Bees, Triple-A affiliate of the Anaheim Angels on April 10. Expected to start the game is left handed pitcher Bradley Mills, a minor leaguer who has pitched within three levels of the Blue Jays farm system and completed the 2009 season with the 51’s with a 4.06 ERA.
Others to watch for, Venezuelan infielder Jesus Merchan, formerly of Triple-A Tuscon and brand new to Cashman field, who is the current 51’s batting leader with a .429 AVG as well as first baseman Brian Dopirak. Dopirak is currently batting .350 and with 20 AB has already managed a BB and two doubles. Dopirak is also notably on the 40-man Blue Jays roster and will likely get the call-up well before rosters expand.
Tonight’s game against the Grizzlies starts at 7:05pm, gates open at 6pm.
