PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The 20th season of Portland Sea Dogs baseball will get underway Thursday when the Dogs host the Trenton Thunder at Hadlock field.

The team was at Hadlock Tuesday having their first workout in Portland after spring training.

This year's team is loaded with some of the top prospects in the Red Sox system. Some are not expected to be around for very long as call-ups are likely.

Players, fans and broadcasters say the crack of the bat at Hadlock can't come quickly enough.

Wednesday is media day at the field.
