This is a very exciting week for local baseball fans and players alike. The long winter is shedding its skin in favour of a dry baseball field; and soon to be hot summer days and nights spent cheering our Moncton Fisher-Cats of the NB Senior Baseball League. As I write this the 2017 Roster roster is being finalized, the Kiwanis Park grounds Crew is waiting to put the finishing touches on our ‘Field Of Dreams’, and the small army of dedicated volunteers tasked with making Game Day as enjoyable as possible for the fans are sharpening their skills. And so we anticipate Opening Day this Sunday when Fredericton Royals will prove to be a worthy opponent to officially kick off the season, first pitch 2 pm. Have a successful campaign! See you all at the ball park!
