Good evening and welcome to tonight's game between the Iowa Hawkeyes and your Milwaukee Panthers. I am joining you from Duane Banks Field here in Iowa City and ready for a beautiful night of baseball.
We arrived around 4 p.m., with a stop at Happy Joe's for a fantastic pizza buffet thrown in for good measure. If you have any questions during today's game, send them my way at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have the email open during the game and would be more than happy to answer any questions.
