Upon glancing at the Fisher Cats roster, you will notice one name that sticks out like a sore thumb. Kevin Nolan, a New Hampshire native, is listed as an infielder on the Fishers roster, his stats show that he has the Double-A caliber that the Fisher Cats are going to need this season.

Nolan, 25, shined bright in Spring Training, and started at shortstop in the season opener. He got right to work and showcased his skills early in the season opener Thursday night, as he had an RBI single to score the Fisher Cat’s first run of the season. The crowd immediately erupted with cheers and applause. What a homecoming for the “granite stater!”
