OC Coyotes ready to play ball

Expectations are high this year for the Okanagan College Coyotes baseball team as players reported for the team’s seventh season on Monday (Sept. 1).

Last season, the Coyotes made it all the way to the Canadian College Baseball Conference Championships but fell to Lethbridge’s Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs in dramatic fashion, 8-7.

Head coach Geoff White is optimistic about the team’s prospects for the upcoming year.

“We have a good group,” said White. “We have many strong returning players and a promising group of freshmen. I have high expectations this season.”

After participating in some social events during orientation week, the team play starts on Sept. 6, with three intra-squad games at Elks Stadium over the course of the weekend. It will be the first chance White has to see his first year players in action.

“We have a busy fall schedule, which will give us lots of time on the field. It’s a long season but everything we do is preparation for those CCBC championships in May,” said White.

The Coyotes first series against another team begins on Sept. 13 at 2:30 p.m. when they face the Langley Blaze at Elks Stadium in Kelowna.

Get tickets for the Coyotes home games at the gate for $5.
