AKRON, Ohio - It's opening day for the Akron Aeros and there's a big giveaway if the temperature gets below 40 degrees at first pitch.
Someone will win $10,000 if the temperature gets below 40 degrees at the 7:05 p.m. start time. However, Power of 5 meteorologist Christine Ferreira said that it will likely be closer to 50 degrees.
Grady Sizemore and Reliever Joe Smith are scheduled to be with the Aeros tonight.
Sizemore is rehabing from off-season knee surgery. He hopes to join the Indians sometime in the next couple of weeks.
Joe Smith is working his way back from a hurt abdomen. He will make a couple of appearances before making a return sometime in the middle of April.
The Aeros will also be introducing a new food item for fans to enjoy. The "Nice 2 Meat You" Burger is 1/4 lb. hamburger, stuffed with a 1/2 lb. hot dog, and 1/4 lb. of bacon, cheese and onions.
After the game, the Aeros will have a firework show to cap off opening day.
