ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The Rochester Red Wings open the 2023 season at home at the newly named Innovative Field on Friday.

Baseball in March in Rochester never sounded colder!

“It’s my first time. It’s a little chilly, but I kind of expected that,” said position player Darren Baker.

Baker, as well as other members of the Red Wings, will be playing baseball in the cold weather for the first time.

Pitcher Jake Irvin is originally from Minnesota, and looks at it a bit different.

“It is something that we have to embrace and especially as a pitcher, guy with the ball in your hand, we control the game at all times,” said Irvin.

The Red Wings host the Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Friday at 4 p.m.
