ASHEVILLE, N.C. (April 4, 2019) – The Asheville Tourists begin their 2019 season tonight when they host the Augusta GreenJackets at 7:05 p.m. at McCormick Field. The Tourists played their first season at the historic park in 1924.

Ryan Feltner is scheduled to get the start on the hill tonight for the Tourists. The 6’4″, 210 lb. right-hander pitched as an undergraduate for Ohio State and was a fourth-round pick of the Colorado Rockies (Asheville’s parent team) in 2018. He started nine games without registering a decision last year at their Grand Junction, Colorado affiliate.
