Images From Spring Opener (Without the Squashed Manatees)

As you no doubt know, the Pirates beat up on a hapless junior college squad in their spring opener by a score of several million to one, roughly.  For some reason, the annual game against the junior college Manatees is usually something less than a laugher.  The Pirates even lost a few years ago, courtesy of Virgil Vasquez.  This time, however, the junior college kids struggled to throw strikes and make routine defensive plays.
