3) Players served as base coaches although I think manager Delino DeShields was the 3B coach.
Is that typical for an A league game?
I didn't come away particularly impressed with any players but the Dragons catcher was pretty impressive defensively and the SS hada good night at the plate. My seats weren't the greatest but it was fun and I'll return for a game in June
Anyone have any comments on attending Dragons games?
Love going to Dragons games. They do a great job putting on a game and that ballpark is really cool. Makes you feel like you're not even in Dayton for a couple hours.
As to 1, 2, and 3 above, that's typical at ALL levels of the minor leagues.
See the Bats roster: http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats...=true&sid=t416
Only 3 coaches listed. Some teams will have the batting coach at 1st base during games, but most cover it with a player.
