The wait proved to be worth it in the Lake Monsters’ home opener on Saturday night.
Vermont third baseman Noah Granet smashed a three-run home run in the sixth inning that made the difference in the Monsters’ 6-3 win over the Norwich Sea Unicorns at Centennial Field.
The game was Vermont’s first at the ballpark in 638 days, when the team was still a minor league affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.
The Lake Monsters improved to 1-1 this season, and Vermont continues the series against Norwich on Sunday, May 30. First pitch at Centennial Field is currently slated for 5:05 p.m.
