After a tough, four-loss weekend against UBC, the WolfPack baseball team is looking to bounce back and onto the winning track this weekend with six games scheduled.
Action starts Friday night, Sept. 30, as the ’Pack will be taking on the Okanagan A’s of the Premier Baseball League (PBL). The PBL is B.C.’s highest-level high school league. The ’Pack and the A’s will be playing a doubleheader, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., at Norbrock Stadium. They will be seven-inning games.
On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1-2, WolfPack will take on the newest team to the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Conference, University of Fraser Valley Cascades. The two teams met last year but all games against them were exhibition games. Game times are 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on both days, at Norbrock Stadium. They will be regular, nine-inning games.
“We’ve had a rough start this fall so far, but if we want to turn things around, this is the weekend to do it,” said pitcher Scott Wood.
“This is our chance to see Fraser Valley and how they stack up cause they’re new to the league this year,” said fourth-year outfielder Malcolm Upton. “Hopefully we get the bats going and our pitching is solid like it has been so far.”
