Flying Tigers Coverage

2009 April 8 #7

The Lakeland Flying Tigers players, coaches, and staff met season ticket holders and fans at a luncheon today. Each player took a moment to step to the mic, list his hometown, college, where he played last year, and favorite off field activity. Suffice it to say, the players love golf.

The home opener is tomorrow night and Lakeland Local will be there. We’re going to make the effort to cover the team this season. While we can’t cover every game in person, we’ll make sure to offer photos and feature stories when possible. Stats fans will be happy to note that we’ve also reserved a spot on the home page for each game’s box score.
