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.
