Before you know it summer will be long gone and short season baseball will be over until next June. And that makes the Indians' opener on Friday all the more important.

Spokane hosts Salem-Kaiser at Avista Stadium in the first game of the season Friday night - a game shown live on SWX for those who aren't quick enough to get a ticket. As of Friday morning

there were still some tickets available, but they historically go fast.

"On opening night we'll have 7,000 or 8,000 fans and it gets pretty loud," said Spokane pitcher Kyle Hendricks. "We've actually been working on communication stuff on the field because we won't be able to hear each other all the time. It sounds exciting."

SWX goes live with pregame coverage Friday at 6:30 p.m. The first pitch will be thrown by former full-time radio announcer Bob Robertson.
