Baseball fans, rejoice. Baseball season is finally upon us. The MLB regular season is just a week away, and for local fans, teams like the Victoria Mariners are already underway.
The Mariners, who took on the Victoria Eagles at Lambrick Park last night, hope to ascend to the top of the BCPBL standings on hot pitching and stellar defence. The team boasts some of the top young talent in the country, including pitcher Fynn Chester, who has been selected for Canada’s junior national team and will lead the rotation for the Mariners.
Catcher Jon Gale believes that if the team can get the bats going, the team could surmount over 35 wins this season and contend for the BCPBL Championship.
