For the teams of the North Saskatchewan River Baseball League it is finally, officially time to “play ball”.
After being delayed for two months due to COVID-19, the season began Sunday with a 7-1 win by defending champion Standard Hill Lakers over the Meadow Lake Sox.
It continued Tuesday night with four games, including the first game in the Battlefords between the Battlefords Trappers and North Battleford Beavers. The Trappers prevailed in that contest 4-1.
In other games Standard Hill beat Mervin Flyers 10-1 and the Unity Cardinals beat the Unity Junior Cardinals 7-1. The game between Border City Blue Jays and Kindersley Stallions was rained out.
The Jr. Cardinals were scheduled to host Lloydminster Twins Wednesday and there are two games Thursday, with the Trappers hosting Mervin and the Twins in Kindersley.
