Ben Verlander settles in with Whitecaps

COMSTOCK PARK — Ben Verlander continues to chase his dream of joining his brother Justin in the big leagues someday.  That dream became more of a reality when he made a position switch in college.  Ben decided to not follow in Justin's footsteps on the mound and instead became an outfielder. 

The Whitecaps begin the season tonight with a four-game series on the road against Dayton.  They return to Fifth Third Ballpark for their home-opener on Tuesday.
