Our Canada Day Countdown shifts to Muenster where baseball is a firmly entrenched part of the community. What could be better than a Red Sox double-header followed by a meal of Muenster ribs and fixings to put Canada Day 2023 in the books?
The East Central 18UAAA Red Sox will be facing down the White Butte Broncos in a Saturday pairing at James Korte Field. Head Coach of the Red Sox Garret Korte says he and the team are looking forward to a big crowd along with the Canada Day celebration. It’s a race for playoff spots in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League, and the Red Sox are solidly in the hunt.
“We’re in the top of the league right now, and we’ve got a couple big games on July 1st to keep us up there with the better teams in the league. We have about six weeks of the season left, so every game is important.”
The team is firmly perched in the top half of the league with a 12-6 record, currently three games up on the Sask 5 Giants, so no doubt, the Red Sox would like to walk away on Canada Day with two more in their pocket.
To add to the excitement of a stellar season, the Muenster Elks will host their second Canada Day rib supper, says Korte.
“We’re partnering with the Muenster Elks and the Muenster Community Day Care for our Canada Day supper late in the afternoon, about 5 pm. We’re going to sell tickets for the smoked rib supper that day during the ball game. Only 200 tickets will be sold for supper.”
Tickets will be available at James Korte Field during the ball game – tickets are not available by presale. A beer garden and concession will be open throughout the day. Proceeds are going to the Muenster Community Day Care.
There will be smoke on and off the field this Canada Day at James Korte Field as the Red Sox join forces with the Muenster Elks and the Muenster Community Day Care to make this Canada Day a memorable one.
