Kamloops, BC—The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack baseball team will be hosting a team from the Dominican Republic this September.
UTESA: Universidad Technologica de Santiago will be spending six days in Kamloops from September 4-10).
“A friend who was visiting the Dominican Republic had them contact me about coming over,” said WolfPack head coach Ray Chadwick. “They want to come here in the fall and have us come there in the spring of 2019.”
UTESA is the Technological University of Santiago. Their team is made up of players aged 23-27. “I am excited about having an international university here for a week. I am sure they will be good especially since they are an older squad.”
The plan is to have the Dominicans play the WolfPack ever one of the six days they are here. Chadwick is in conversation with both Okanagan College (Kelowna) and UBC (Vancouver) about having them travel here as well to play them. “It should be a fun competitive week of baseball,” he adds.
The WolfPack’s fall schedule is made up completely of exhibition games. They begin their training camp with an ‘open tryout’ on August 31st, 6 pm at Norbrock Stadium which will be the same venue for the games against UTESA.
