Recently, our very own radio broadcaster Paul Taylor spoke with IronBirds Manager Matt Merullo down in Sarasota. Here is his interview.
By Paul Taylor
Last week, we shared some interviews with former IronBirds in Frederick and Bowie as the Keys and Baysox have each begun their respective seasons. Last week was also an Opening Day of sorts in Sarasota for the Orioles’ Extended Spring Training program. IronBirds‘ Manager Matt Merullo is heading up the program for the second year in a row and gave us a list of 2013 IronBirds who are getting some more work done in Sarasota.
It is important to note a couple things with this list. It is not exhaustive. It also doesn’t mean anything for the future (such as who might be on the IronBirds’ roster when June rolls around). We just wanted to provide you fans with a better idea of where some of your favorite former IronBirds are playing ball as of now.
**Please also note that the list is current as of the first week of April.
