The Kelowna Falcons will open their 2015 West Coast Leaggue season June 5 in Victoria.

Falcons to be well-travelled in 2015

West Coast League baseball schedule for Kelowna team released this week

The Kelowna Falcons will once again be the most travelled team in the West Coast League.

The 2015 schedule was released this week with the Falcons set to cover more than 9,200 kilometres throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Kelowna, entering its 15th season, will play an unbalanced 54-game regular season schedule out of the East  Division.

The Falcons will open the season on the road against the only other Canadian franchise, the Victoria Harbourcats, for the third straight year, on Friday, June 5. It’s the only meeting of the season against the Harbourcats.

The Falcons will face their Eastern Division foes—Wenatchee Applesox, Walla Walla Sweets and Yakima Valley Pippins—nine times each over the course of the summer.

On Tuesday, June 9 the Falcons will host their home opener and will continue their tradition of offering free admission.

The defending WCL Champion Bellingham Bells will make their only stop at Elks Stadium for a three game series beginning Monday, June 22.  The Medford (Oregon) Rogues will make their first ever appearance in Kelowna for a three game series beginning Friday, June 12.

The Falcons will face their bitter rivals, the Applesox, nine times in 17 days in July.

“This is a big year for us,” says General Manager Mark Nonis.  “It’s our 15th season in Kelowna coming off two straight difficult summers.  I believe head coach Billy Clontz has a much better handle on things at this standpoint of the year and I’m excited to see our club come together in early June.“

“We made some great strides last summer by filling the ballpark a number of times and we have some exciting things planned for this coming summer.”

Game times at Elks are scheduled for 6:35 p.m. with the exception of Sundays at 6:05 p.m.  Select game times may be changed once the promotional schedule is finalized.
