PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Portland Sea Dogs are just days away from opening their 2012 season.

The Sea Dogs will play a double header against the Reading, PA Phillies on Thursday, April 5th.

A double header is an unconventional way to start the season, but that was the team gets to have Easter Sunday off.

The team hit Hadlock Field for the frist time Tuesday afternoon with batting and fielding practice.

After being down South for the past couple months, the temperatures are something the players have to adjust to.

Weather permitting, the Sea Dogs will play their home opener on April 12th at 6:00 PM against the Binghamton Mets.
