The boys opened the season strong against a small contingent of the Chesapeake Nine from Baltimore County. Several Rising Sun ballists volunteered to switch sides to play for the adversary, including two muffins. The team looked strong in both games, playing solid defense while holding the opponent to 3 runs in the first game and 2 in the second. The bats were warm during both contests, even if the weather was chilly. All-in-all, the ballists from the Rising Sun club enjoyed a solid opening day and look forward to next week's opponent.
