OKC Coyotes host ball tourney

The Okanagan College Coyotes have won five of their last six and will look to continue their hot play as they will host their inaugural “Easter Weekend Classic” featuring all five Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC) teams this weekend at Elk Stadium.

The Classic begins on Friday at 4 p.m. as the Yotes will host the University of Calgary Dinos in a make-up game. The two clubs will face each other again immediately following the first game as part of a doubleheader.

Saturday there are only two games scheduled, the first at 3 p.m. as the Coyotes host the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners (VIBI). Last weekend the Coyotes won three of the four games in Nanaimo.

The second game on Saturday will feature the Mariners and the Dinos at 6 p.m.

Easter Sunday will see a full slate of games beginning at 10 a.m. as the Mariners match-up with the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs (PBA). The day will conclude with the Dawgs facing the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Wolfpack at 7 p.m.

The Yotes are the only team without a game on Sunday, but will conclude the weekend on Monday with two games at 10:30 a.m. versus the Dawgs and at 4 p.m. against the Wolfpack.

Admission at the front gate is $5 per game, or $20 for the weekend.
