10 Jul Baseball is Back!
Baseball is back in the Magic City for the first time since the late 1990s. The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs have made their debut this summer with huge success. The baseball team, calls Minot their home.
The team is a wood-bat summer collegiate lineup. The players are college baseball players and students from around the country, from New York to Texas, to Washington, and many other states. They even have a couple of baseball players from our local institution, Minot State University. The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs is one of eight teams in the Expedition League in the Great Plains region. The region includes North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Wyoming, with one other team in North Dakota. The Badlands Big Sticks, located in Dickinson. This is the very first year of this Expedition League, and they hit a “home run” when they picked Minot to be the home for the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs.
The last time Minot had a taste of America’s pastime was in 1997 when the Minot Mallards concluded their season for the last time. The Minot Mallards were in Minot in the 1950s, 60s, and then again in the 90s. The Sabre Dogs want to renew the sense of community that comes with a local baseball team. And they hope to be a part of the community as much as they can. The Sabre Dogs want you to get involved too. They want you to get to know them. They offer sponsorship opportunities, and they are also looking for host families for the players. The players on the team will be away from home all summer and need a home away from home. Providing players with a safe and secure place to stay while they are in Minot is vital to the success of the team.
The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs will provide affordable and wholesome family entertainment this summer while providing the players with experience and tools to optimize their development. They offer season tickets, ticket packages, and single-game tickets. All information is on their website.
The sky is the limit for the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs, and they want you along for the ride. You can check them out on their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If you haven’t been to a game yet, you should head on out to Corbett Field before the summer is over!
