Off the Diamond: Tyler Hildreth
You haven’t seen much from the LumberBlog the last two days, and you can blame Mother
Nature. The Kings were rained out in the finale at Peoria on Tuesday night, then saw last night’s game suspended by rain at Alliant Energy Field in the fourth inning with Quad Cities leading, 1-0.
Last night’s game resumes tonight with another seven-inning contest to follow. Right-hander Erasmo Ramirez (5-3, 3.01) will start the second game. Read more in tonight’s Game Notes:
With no new player/coach to interview, I figured it’s high time to renew the “Off the Diamond” segment. Tonight, I catch up with LumberKings’ clubhouse manager Tyler Hildreth. A member of the staff since 2007, Hildreth has seen the likes of MLB All-Star Neftali Feliz, Justin Smoak, Derek Holland and Craig Gentry pass through Clinton on their way to the Major Leagues. He’s also a diehard Miami Heat fan and will weigh in on his excitement over the pending LeBron James decision.
