The Regina Red Sox were scheduled to open their 2014 Western Major Baseball League schedule on the road against the Beavers in Weyburn last night. This afternoon they open the home portion of their season at Currie Field at 2:05 p.m. against the Swift Current Indians. Like the Red Sox, the Indians traditionally have a pretty strong squad. Although because the WMBL relies heavily on U.S. college players there typically is a lot of roster turnover so it’s always hard to predict how teams are going to perform year to year.
The Melville Millionaires are the defending WMBL champions, and after today’s game the Red Sox will journey north to tackle them in a two-game set on Monday and Tuesday. Then they’re back home to play the Moose Jaw Miller Express on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Single game tickets for the Red Sox are adults $10, youth 5-14 $5, while kids under 5 are free. You can find out more info on the team via their website.
