PRINCETON -

The Princeton Rays were in full swing at the baseball field Monday preparing for their upcoming season.

It was a day of many firsts. First day of practice at Hunnicutt field, first year with Manager Danny Sheaffer, and they're getting ready for their first game of the season.

"It's always exciting.  We always have a new group of players and the dynamic of the team is different from year to year," said Sheaffer.

For many players, it's their first time playing Minor League baseball.

Shortstop Spencer Edwards is excited to get started. "I mean I've never been on the road before. This is my first shot, I mean I'm young, everyone else here is young. We're going to do the best we can to go out there and win."

Their season opener is at Danville on Thursday which will be game 1 of a 3 game series against the Braves.

After the Rays road trip they will return to Princeton Sunday for their first home game.
