It's finally time to Play Ball for the Memphis Redbirds!

Opening Day at Rosenblatt Stadium Thursday in Omaha, Nebraska against the Royals...

Nothing like a 2-run home run for the Redbirds to start the season off with a bang!

Newcomer Kevin Howard lines one over the rightfield Fence to give the 'Birds a 2-Nothing lead in the second inning.

Then in the Top of the 3rd, Jon Jay, a holdover from last year, blasts a Solo Shot outta here, and it's 3-Nothing Memphis..

But, trouble for 'Birds starter Evan McClain in the bottom of the Frame.

1st Baseman Keela Ka'aihue knocks one Waay outta here to right..

4th inning, Jordan Paraz just barely clears the wall, but they all count, game knotted 3-all

Royals outlast the Redbirds Final Score..6-to-4
