Memphis Redbirds Schedule in 2014
The Memphis Redbirds are ready to fly high this season as they battle it out
with some of the best teams in Minor League Baseball. The Redbirds have a team brimming with talent, and that talent would
take them right to the top of the standings this season. The Redbirds play in the Pacific Coast League, and are a part of
the American Conference's North Division. It's never an easy road to the top of the standings, but the Redbirds have their
sights set there this season. Memphis coming off a 2013 season in which they narrowly missed out on posting a winning record,
and they fell just a game shy of finishing first in their division. The Redbirds are hoping to improve this season and take
it to every opponent that steps into the diamond at AutoZone Park in 2014. If they have their great home crowd behind them,
there may be no stopping the Redbirds this year.
The Redbirds will definitely look to play their best against the Oklahoma
City RedHawks, who posted the best regular season record in the Pacific Coast League in 2013 with an 82-62 mark. The RedHawks
have some of the biggest prospects in the game, so they're never easy to take down, but that won't stop the Redbirds from
giving it their all when Oklahoma City comes to town this season. The Redbirds will look forward to playing a multitude of
other teams as well, such as the Omaha Storm Chasers, who beat them out for the division title last season. Make sure you
take a good look at the rest of the schedule this season, because 2014 is filled with matchups that you're going to want to
witness in person.
