TODAY'S TILTS

1:05  Cedar Rapids (John Klein) at Beloit
5:05  Tampa at Fort Myers (TBD)
6:05  Frisco at Wichita (TBD)
6:35  St. Paul (Brent Headrick, 0-0, 4.91) at Nashville

Old TBD is getting an early workout.  I have to think they know who their second starter is going to be, but have just chosen not to announce it this far ahead for some reason.
