Kelowna, BC – After ending their regular season in third place with a 13-15 record, it’s time for playoffs for the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack baseball team as they had to Kelowna today for the festivities to begin. The playoff tournament starts tomorrow (Thursday, May 12th) but the opening ceremonies and homerun derby kick off the weekend tonight.
The schedule for the WolfPack looks like this:
Thursday, May 12th – 3:30pm at Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs
Friday, May 13th – 10am vs. Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners
7pm at Okanagan College Coyotes
Saturday, May 14th – 1pm – vs. University of Calgary Dinos
Sunday, May 15th – To Be Announced
“If we play good defense, execute on offence and consistently throw strikes, I like our chances this weekend,” saying veteran pitcher Frank Fisico.
“We have the talent to win, no question, but I think it’ll come down to who can show which team is mentally prepared the most and that means being 100% in the moment. I think if we all support each other the hard work we have put in as a group since September will pay off,” says outfielder Isiah McDonald.
“We are going into playoffs with the mindset that if we play our game, we can beat anybody,” says veteran second baseman/centre fielder Tony Tabor, “going into it in third place, we are not really one of the teams to beat, so there it no pressure on us.”
This is also the last weekend for the four seniors, who will be playing their final games in their WolfPack jersey.
“I’m going to enjoy all areas of my final weekend with my teammates, friends and coaches and do everything I can to give the team a chance to win.” Fisico states.
“Like every year, my goal is to win the championship, and it would be extra special to do it in my last year,” says Tabor.
The WolfPack had a disappointing playoffs last year, and they are looking to put it behind them and come home with a championship. Everything that happened during the season doesn’t matter now and the ‘Pack know that and are confident going into playoffs.
