The Horns are out of the dugout for the final warmup & Parker French is making his warmup tosses. The Horns are in all white tonight with white caps. Hats have a burnt orange brim to match the letters/numbers on their jerseys & the high socks.

 

Beautiful 84 degree evening with almost no breeze at all.

 

Time of first pitch is 6:06.
