Tap House Wolves among the winners on opening night in the Saskota Baseball League

The Saskota Baseball League opened its 2020 season Thursday night with four games.

In other action, the Redvers A’s won 7-1 over the Oxbow Chiefs and the Kipling Royals edged the Kenosee Cubs 1-0.

The defending champion Carnduff Astros were the only team not in action Thursday. They’ll open their season Friday night when they host the Cubs. The other Friday game on the slate sees the Cardinals visit their Highway 13 rivals, the Arcola Threshers.

The start of the 2020 season was delayed by almost two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Teams will play a 10-game regular season that will span the month of July.

From there, they will have a three-round playoff, with best-of-three series in each round, and a champion will be crowned in August. Traditionally the league has held the Harborne Cup championship tournament in late July in Kenosee Lake, but that won’t be able to happen this year.
