SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: Believe it or not, but the Tri-City ValleyCats season will get underway Friday when they host the Vermont Lake Monsters at 7 p.m. at Joe Bruno Stadium. We will get a chance to see Astros first-round pick Seth Beer as well, but who knows how long he will stay before he gets called up. Prior to the start of the season, the ValleyCats will have a preseason scrimmage with the Albany Dutchmen on Wednesday.
