With freezing like temperatures, the Dayton Dragons took the field last night in the season opener against the Lansing Lugnuts. The weather did not scare many away as a packed house at Fifth Third Field was give quite a show. The off-field activities were spectacular with a fly over, white doves released, drumline and much more. And the play on the field did not disappoint either as DiDi Gregorious hit a walkoff single in the bottom of the 11th to put the Dragons in first place after day #1. The same two teams will go at it tonight and tomorrow night before Dayton hits the road for Bowling Green and Fort Wayne.
