New atmosphere, same game for up and coming Dust Devils
PASCO, Wash. -- Minor league ball players get their share of sky miles. Almost every year, sometimes more often, it is a new city, new club, just trying to move up. The new class of Tri-City Dust Devils come from all across the U.S. plus Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. In the end, the new Dust Devils just have to remember it is still the same game they love.
"Regardless of what the surroundings look like, huge stadium like this, you're out on extended Spring Training complex fields, it's still the game," head coach Drew Saylor said. "It's still 90 feet, still 60 feet 6 inches and the goal is to score more runs than the other guys. It's just going out there and playing the game, enjoying the atmosphere being able to interact with the fans and with the community. Being able to do those things is what's going to allow our guys to go out and prosper and be successful."
