Welcome to the TigsTown Player Blog! Care to see what it's like down in the minors? Find out what the players in the Tigers farm system have to say inside!

The first week in West Michigan has defintely been one with a warm welcome. As soon as we landed we were greeted at the airport with media and mascots. It showed me just how much baseball and the Whitecaps mean to Grand Rapids.

Since we didn't have much time before our first game and our exhibition game got rained out, we had time to meet our host families at the annual pre-season dinner which had a lot of great food and conversations.

So far the experience in West Michigan has gone above and beyond my expectations. I, as well as the team, are looking forward to playing solid baseball and giving the fans some wins as well.

Billy Alvino will be blogging along on TigsTown.com as the season goes along. Make sure to check back in for the latest from Billy and the Whitecaps!
