Portland, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Today is opening day for the Portland Sea Dogs, and despite an rainy looking forecast, the games still on as of this morning.
It's the 24th season for the Dogs, 15th as an affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. New players come and go each year, but one thing hasn't changed, and its the mascot. Team president Charlie Eshbach (the Sea Dogs first ever employee) talked with NEWS CENTER about how Slugger the Sea Dog came to be a stable here in Maine all those years ago.
