NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Warm summer days mean it's time for one thing: SteepleCats baseball at Joe Wolfe Field.
Almost all of the SteepleCats 2018 roster arrived this weekend in North Adams, ready to trade in their college colors for blue, white, and gray. Sunday marked the first practice as a team, as they'll have a short period to get ready before their first game on Tuesday.
"As a coaching staff we're just trying to put guys in positions to get back into their routines, nice and easy to get their bodies going again because with it being a 44 game schedule we got a little bit of time to get going, and just excited and ready to get this season going," head coach Justin Sumner said.
The players are also rearing to get going.
"I'm always ready to get back on the field and excited to play baseball," said SteepleCats outfielder Jeffrey Brown. "I'm looking to get some more experience playing baseball. I can really learn a lot from these guys around here, from the coaches especially and from playing in this league."
The SteepleCats travel to Danbury, Conn., to take on the Westerners on Tuesday for the Opening Day of the New England Collegiate Baseball League. Two days later, the SteepleCats will have their home opener on Thursday, taking on the Upper Valley Nighthawks.
Tickets for the home opener are available now online at www.SteepleCats.org or an hour prior to the game at the SteepleCats box office at Joe Wolfe Field.
