Major League Baseball games haven’t started yet, but the independent league American Association starts their regular season tonight. We’re putting up a game thread for those that are watching or listening to any of the games. If you’re not sure how to get a audio or video stream of the game, we have you covered for teams located in the “Twins Territory” area: click here!

The four “area” teams are facing each other this weekend. Two long-time rivals, the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks and the Winnipeg Goldeyes, will face off at Newman Outdoor Field on the campus of North Dakota State University in Fargo, North Dakota, for a three-game set. Interim manager and World Series Champion Chris Coste will lead the RedHawks for the first time while seasoned manager Rick Forney will lead the Goldeyes.

The St Paul Saints will be the visiting team while playing the Sioux Falls Canaries at The Birdcage - Sioux Falls Stadium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota - for a three game set as well. George Tsamis will be in his 17th season at the helm for the Saints while Mike Meyer will be in his fourth season leading the Canaries.
