The Okotoks Dawgs (1-0) play host to the Medicine Hat Mavericks (0-1) at Seaman Stadium Saturday, June 3. First pitch flies at 7:05 pm.
ABOUT LAST NIGHT
The Dawgs jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first, only to add a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth. Rookie Jayse McLean (NDSU) provided the spark in the bottom half of the opening frame, doubling to the left centre gap and scoring two. Medicine Hat chipped away in the fifth inning before taking the lead in the top half of the ninth with a four-run outburst. With their final three outs, the Dawgs clawed their way back into the win column via a walk-off double from Greg Cullen (Niagara University).
MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT
Join the Okotoks Dawgs tonight as we honour military members, veterans and their families on Military Appreciation Night. The King’s Own Regiment 8 PC band will be performing our national anthem and will be setting up information tables on the concourse.
There will be a service vehicle on display just outside the main gates at 6 pm. Warrant Officer Massiah and Sergeant Weetman will also be presenting the Canadian flag on the field prior to first pitch.
The first 500 fans to the ball park will receive the 2008 WMBL champions Dawgs team pictures.
