South Bend Silver Hawks make Opening Day weather guarantee


The South Bend Silver Hawks are trying to hit it out of the park before this season's first pitch.

On Thursday, the team issued a guarantee for the home opener.

The thermometer has to get over the 50-degree mark on April 8th. If not, everyone in attendance will receive a free ticket to a remaining regular season game.

Right now, with the winter that we've had, it seems like a long way off.

"Obviously, you look out there now, and you see about a foot, a foot-and-a-half of snow out on the field," said Team President Joe Hart. "So, we have some work to do before Opening Day, but we'll be here. We'll be ready."

Hart says once the snow melts, there shouldn't be any issues because of the synthetic turf used on the field.
