The Alexandria Beetles open up the 2012 summer schedule at home tonight, Wednesday, with a game against the Thunder Bay Border Cats at 7:05 p.m.
The two teams will then wrap up the series on Thursday morning with an 11:05 first pitch.
Beetles players were scheduled to start coming into town on Monday afternoon before taking part in their first practice Tuesday evening. The Memorial Day Holiday pushed up the deadline for the Wednesday edition of the Echo Press before players arrived.
Sports reporter Eric Morken was at that first practice and will have news and notes from the players who are already in Alexandria on his blog at www.echopress.com. For more stories on what fans can expect from this team this summer, check out Friday’s issue of the Echo Press.
