FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-May 28, 2013
The defending Provincial Champion Fredericton Peterbilt DQ Royals will try again this week to kick off their 2013 New Brunswick Senior Baseball League schedule with a pair of games on Thursday and Friday respectively.
The Royals will travel to Chatham on Thursday to face the Ironmen in a 7:30 start. Veteran Right Hander Derek Wilson, in his first game back with the Royals, will get the start on the mound against his former team in what should be an excited game which will also feature the debut to the Royals lineup of former Major Leaguer Matt Stairs.
The following night will be this season’s first edition of Friday Night Lights Baseball at the newly upgraded Royals Field. The Royals will play host to the Saint John Alpines with Royals Ace Dan Murphy getting the pitching start. Game time is 7:30pm on baseball hill.
It’s going to be a very exciting summer on the hill as new player dugouts have been built in honor of long time Fredericton community supporter Bob Kenny, who will be on hand for the opening ceremonies on Friday.
The entire Royals organization is extremely pleased to welcome the newest and most exciting addition to the lineup, hometown sports hero and former Major Leaguer and World Series Champion Matt Stairs. His experience, knowledge and baseball ability will be a welcome addition to a lineup which went 22-8 last year and won the league championship in five games over the Moncton Mets. With a trip to the Canadian Senior Baseball Championship scheduled for August in Windsor, Ontario, the Royals are looking forward to their most exciting season ever on Baseball Hill!
Season passes are available at a cost of $60. As always, admission for kids under 12 is free. Passes are available for purchase at the Dairy Queen on Union Street or they can be picked up at the Royals ticket booth on game night.
