As the sun shines brighter and the days grow longer, you know it’s the baseball season in Brooks. And while we might not pack the stadium with thousands, those of us who follow our local team, the Brooks Bombers, are always excited and ready to support our players.
The crack of the bat, the cheer of the crowd, and the anticipation as the ball soars; that’s the magic of baseball in Brooks. As we move into the second half of the 2023 season, the boys are geared up and ready to leave their mark on the field.
The 2023 Season: The Action So Far and What’s Next
The Bombers opened their season with a hard-fought battle against the reigning champions, the Okotoks Dawgs, on May 26th. The month ended on a high note as we bested the Fort McMurray Giants in a monumental victory.
June saw a resilient Brooks Bombers side start the month by falling to the Okotoks Dawgs but coming out on top of the Swift Current 57s, demonstrating the Bombers’ never-say-die spirit. Fan favourite, Eric Rataczak, consistently impresses, blasting home runs and boasting a .371 batting average, earning him a slot in the July 15th All Star Game.
As we navigate through July, the Bombers’ determination hasn’t waned. From the road trips into Saskatchewan to the home-and-away matchups against the Medicine Hat Mavericks and Lethbridge Bulls, there’s lots of action to look forward to.
Looking into August, anticipation builds as playoff spots become coveted, and with key matchups such as the multiple encounters with Fort McMurray Giants on the horizon – the anticipation of a thrilling post-season looms for the Bombers’ journey.
