Checking Back In...

By: Spenser Smith

Just how quickly has this season gone by?

Quickly enough that nearly a month has passed with no blog post! Busy road trips, late-night dinners and game write-ups, and now a two-credit online Geography course--such is the lot of a West Coast League broadcaster straight out of college. But make no mistake, this summer has been a remarkably fun experience.

Since the last post, we've seen an all-star rainout in Klamath Falls, two series faraway in southern Oregon, a trip to the Kitsap Peninsula where we got back on track with a sweep of the Bluejackets in Bremerton, and our final day off of the season yesterday.

It's a bittersweet fact that our final home series of the season is now upon us--we are looking forward to a fun and eventful three-game set against Victoria, with a house packed full of loud and supportive fans, but therein lies the disappointing side--those are exactly the things I will miss as this season comes to an end. The fan support has been stellar, and the Sweets are going to do everything within their power to make sure that the end of the regular season does not mean the end of their season--folks, we're still in the hunt for a playoff spot! After these three games at Borleske against Victoria, we'll head up north of the border to face the Kelowna Falcons for the final series of the season, hoping to increase our playoff chances.

Join us these next few nights at Borleske Stadium, as Matt Walker, Cody Carroll and Spencer Hobson have drawn the starting pitching assignments for our last three home games! And don't forget that it's $2 Tuesday, 6 for 36 Wednesday, and Fan Appreciation Night--which means a homestand full of friends, fun and (at the end) fireworks. Hope to see you out there!

Go Sweets!
