Minor League Opening Day

The Mariners four full-season affiliates open the 2012 season today; the Tacoma Rainers (AAA) host Salt Lake in Tacoma, the Jackson Generals (AA) host Birmingham in Jackson, the High Desert Mavericks (A) host Lancaster in Adelanto and the Clinton LumberKings host Burlington in Clinton.

You can follow each game through their team websites (linked above) and via MiLB.com. Mariners.com also has a special section devoted to the minor league affiliates.
