Bantam - Rep Schedule
At this time, our confirmed bantam rep roster consists of Tyler Akeroyd, Kayne Carlson, Anders “Loki” Carlstad, Richelle Eden-Wards, Dustin “Pigpen” Fanning, Jason “Jiggy” Ginter, Dustin Haaf, Brandon Mahowich, Tyson “Mac” McCallum, Dylan “Terminator” Remenyk, Jeremy Scalet, Roy “Rocket” Supernant and Jake “Wheels” Wandling. Obviously we need a few more nicknames… The pre-season professional scouts have said we are young (only 7 second-year players), but what we may lack in age or experience, we make up for in heart. Most of you know the core of this team – I’m happy to welcome Richelle (who played at Bantam Girls Nationals last year) and a couple of new residents (Jeremy and Brandon) to DCMB.
We will enter the Baseball Alberta Competitive Tier 1 Division, under their late start rules. This means we will play round-robin games for two weekends in June, at locations TBA, in what they refer to as Round 2. The Bantam schedule shows these round robin weekend dates are June 2-3 and June 23-24. We can expect travel on each Friday before these dates, unless the games are in or relatively close to DC. After these games, divisions may be reseeded according to performance (there are 4 divisions).
Round 3 will again see us play two round robin weekends to determine whether or not we qualify for provincials, and if so, in what Tier/Division. The schedule shows these weekends as June 30-July 1 and July 7-8. After this date, if there are no make-up games, we should know details as to the Provincials. Tiers 1 and 2 provincials are set for July 27-29; Tiers 3 and 4 are July 20-22.

I look forward to a great year.
LET'S PLAY BALL!
