Okanagan College Coyotes kick off season

The Coyotes enter the 2019 CCBC season with a battle against Edmonton on Saturday

It’s spring and that means baseball is back for the Okanagan College Coyotes.

The 2019 Canadian College Baseball Conference starts its season this weekend as the Coyotes’ first game comes Saturday against the Edmonton Collegiate Baseball Club at Elks Stadium in Kelowna.

Head coach Geoff White said the team is ready to defend its title this season.

“Pitching will have lots of depth and will give the team a good chance to win every game. The offense will be dangerous in all aspects of the game. Good speed, lots of contact, and guys with pop with make this group very dynamic,” said White.

“On defense, the team will be tough to get balls by. When all these aspects come together, the ‘Yotes will be a tough group to beat.”
