Pirates Prospects Minor League Season Ending Tour

To wrap up the minor league season, I will be attending eight games, spanning four stadiums and three Pittsburgh Pirates’ affiliates.  The schedule is as follows, with the probable pitcher in parenthesis:

August 30: Altoona at Bowie (Justin Wilson)

August 31: Altoona at Bowie (Rudy Owens)

September 1: State College vs Auburn (Zac Fuesser)

September 2: State College vs Auburn (Tyler Waldron)

September 3: State College at Williamsport (Zack Dodson)

September 4: Altoona vs Reading (Justin Wilson)

September 5: Altoona vs Reading (Rudy Owens)

September 6: West Virginia vs Hagerstown (Brett Lorin)

I will be providing game recaps for each game, and eventually posting video recaps of each pitcher.  For right now, the lineup of pitchers looks really good, and there should be some interesting guys to watch in relief in State College.
