Media Day is always a lot of fun because it’s not only the first opportunity for the media to interact with the team, it’s a great chance for the front office to get to know the guys as well. Until this point, the Isotopes have been names on a piece of paper but Media Day lets everyone put names and faces together.
Of course, Media Day consists of much more than interviews with the local writers, radio broadcasters, and TV reporters. The day starts with a team meeting to introduce them to Albuquerque and the Isotopes, followed by photos and video that you see on the video board during games.
After interacting with the media and a team photo, the day finishes off with batting practice and a short workout.
On Wednesday, the team will hit the field again for a workout under the lights beginning at 6:00 PM. Albuquerque’s Opening Day starter will also be unveiled sometime tomorrow.
