If the Sharks fail this season, it will not be for lack of trying.
The schedule includes at least 36 games.
“I’m in over my head this year,” travel coordinator Joel Earnest says.
An ambitious second season of the South West Baseball League that includes more teams for this season is the main reason for the Shark’s season expanding. Depending on how many games the SWBL dates include, the season will include 36 to 46 games.
“It’s a lot to organize, I should get a raise”, travel coordinator Earnest says.
The regional schedule are set for eight dates, with 16 matches, ranging from opening day on May 13th to August 26th when the Sharks close out the regular season. Oh yeah, this is of course just the regular season. If the Sharks repeat last year’s success and advance to the playoffs, more game(s) will be played.
“We have a lot of time to practice winning. Apparently, it’s better than losing,” coach Jonny Edgren says.
The SWBL season started last weekend against Jönköping and Skövde and continues tomorrow, April 29th, when the Shark bus travels north to Tranås for a triple header.
