Chapter members kicked off the new baseball season by taking in an exhibition game between the Texas Rangers and the Round Rock Express on April 2 at the Dell Diamond. The teams combined for six home runs, three apiece per team.

Ten members and guests enjoyed the three Rangers home runs by Adrian Beltre, Josh Hamilton and Mitch Moreland, and the other three by Express players Yangervis Solarte, Luis Hernandez and Michael Bianucci. For more about the game, check out the team’s summary by clicking here.

Both starting pitchers, Derek Holland for the Rangers and Greg Reynolds for the Express, labored early in the game, throwing more than 40 pitches apiece in the first few innings.

The next chapter meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at Iron Works BBQ in downtown Austin.
