The boys of summer are back on the diamond, as the BC Premier Baseball League gets set for another season.
The regular-season begins this weekend, and the White Rock Tritons will play Games 1 and 2 of their schedule Sunday afternoon, when they host the Vancouver Cannons at South Surrey Athletic Park.
White Rock has struggled in recent years – the team hasn’t made the playoffs since 2009 – and will be looking to get off to a better start than last year, when they opened with a 5-12 record over the first month-and-a-half.
White Rock’s first game Sunday begins at noon, with the second game of the doubleheader scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
White Rock isn’t the only PBL squad in action this week, as Surrey’s two clubs – the North Delta Blue Jays and Whalley Chiefs – are also set for their season-openers.
The Chiefs open at home Saturday, with a doubleheader against the Coquitlam Reds, and on Sunday head to Abbotsford’s Delair Park for two games against the Abby Cardinals.
The Blue Jays, meanwhile, don’t play until Tuesday, when they will battle the Tritons in a 7 p.m. contest in South Surrey.
