Fan Appreciation Day - $1 Admission
Western Nevada College baseball fans can watch the ’Cats and Dawgs go at it Wednesday at 1 p.m. for only $1.
The Wildcats, defending Region 18 champions, meet Prairie Baseball Academy of Lethbridge, Alberta (Canada) in a nonconference game that opens the WNC’s home season.
“Prairie has a long history of playing Scenic West teams. They know what Scenic West baseball competition looks like,” said WNC coach D.J. Whittemore.
Like WNC, the Dawgs have enjoyed end-of-the-season success. PBA has won the past three Canadian College Baseball Conference titles. The Dawgs (0-4) also participate in a wood bat league.
“It will be the first time we’ve played them,” Whittemore said. “We’re very thankful they put us on their schedule.”
The game marks only the fourth nonconference team that WNC has entertained at John L. Harvey Field. The others are South Mountain, Mount Hood and University of California, Santa Cruz’s club team.
First pitch is at 1 p.m. Admission has been reduced to $1 for all spectators for what Whittemore is declaring as Fan Appreciation Day.
The 14th-ranked Wildcats (7-4) have won seven of their past nine games, including taking two of three from Riverside City College (Calif.) last week.
“Riverside has been a very formidable opponent, and Southern California in general has been inhospitable to us in terms of wins and losses,” Whittemore said. “But the most important thing for us early in the year is to be playing well.”
