Opening day for the Syracuse Chiefs was full of energy,  excitement, and possibilities despite the loss to 4-1 loss to Scranton/Wilkes Barre. The long lines and carnival atmosphere almost made you forget it was a chilly 48 degrees on Thursday.

The new management has made an concerted effort to bring some excitement to Triple-A baseball here in the city. We hope it lasts.
