The Holland Hurricanes baseball program is set to open their 2019 season’s home schedule at Memorial Field, Charlottetown! Holland College will take on St. Francis Xavier University at 1 pm and 3:30 pm on Sunday, 22 September 2019.
The Hurricanes will be recognizing the 2019 Provincial 16U Girls team, who represented Baseball PEI at the 2019 Baseball Canada National 16U Girls Championships this past August in Bedford, NS, prior to the 1 pm game. Players from the Provincial 16U Girls team will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch!
There is no cost to attend, and the Holland College Hurricanes invite all players, coaches and families associated with minor baseball on PEI to attend! There will also be entertainment, a canteen and an apparel shop available at these games as well.
The Holland College Hurricanes are currently 4-0 in Atlantic Collegiate Baseball Association play. Fourteen Island players are on the roster, representing minor baseball associations from tip-to-tip on Prince Edward Island. In addition, the Hurricanes have players from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and even as far as the Bahamas on their squad.
