The Oklahoma City RedHawks will open the 2012 Pacific Coast League season at Newcastle Field in Bricktown Thursday. It's the 15th season of baseball in Bricktown with the Redhawks taking on the Memphis Redbirds at 7:05 p.m. The game is expected to have a sellout crowd.
Emma Youngblood, a 17-year-old from Norman, Oklahoma, won The Oklahoman/Oklahoma City RedHawks National Anthem Auditions and will perform The Star-Spangled Banner before the first pitch.
The Tinker Air Force Base Honor Guard will present the colors, and following the National Anthem, a flyover will feature an E-3 Sentry from the 552 Air Control Wing at Tinker Air Force Base.
