The Syracuse Chiefs begin a two week period of playing National League teams with the designated hitter waived in favor of the pitcher for each team batting.

Todays starting pitcher CRAIG STAMMEN makes history as he comes to the plate in a Chiefs uniform.  Not since September 4th, 1972 has a Chiefs starting pitcher been in the lineup and batted in a game.

Chiefs Wall of Fame inductee ALAN CLOSTER went hitless in three at bats in that game against the Rochester Red Wings.

The Chiefs return home on Friday, April 17th vs Buffalo and pitchers will bat during that entire series.


Any idea who gets the start tonight against Lehigh?

Craig Stammen making history. That’s all that guy does. Can’t wait to see him get called up. Goodluck bro. I will be watching ya someway. Don’t ever forget where you are from.
