Happy Independence Day from The Midwest League Traveler! Tonight I’ll be celebrating America’s 235th birthday at O’Brien Field, home of the Peoria Chiefs. All tickets are half-priced and fans are invited to stay after the game to watch the Peoria riverfront fireworks from the stadium.
The game between the Chiefs and the Clinton LumberKings begins at 6 p.m. The pitching matchup will be LHP Austin Kirk (4-5, 2.88 ERA) for the Chiefs versus RHP Jandy Sena (4-4. 4.75 ERA). As always, I’ll be tweeting from the game, so if you’re on Twitter, follow me at @MWLtraveler.
