The boys of summer have began quest for the Major League Baseball title and so have the L.V. Rogers Bombers on the High School Baseball circuit.
The Bombers have been playing teams south of the 49th parallel to prepare for the annual LVR Invitational April 19-20 at Queen Elizabeth Park in Fairview.
“So far the only days the team has been outside on a field is when we have played in Spokane,” said Bomber head coach Ron Mace.
“We have made many early season mistakes but learn everyday,” Mace added.
The lone games have come against Mead Panthers of Spokane.
LVR,0-5 to start the season played a doubleheader against the Spokane powerhouse in mid-March.
The Bombers travel to Priest River, Idaho for its next game Tuesday (April 9).
To help offset the expensive costs of travelling the Bombers joined forces with Scotia Bank employeesto raise more than $3900 during a car wash fundraiser March 24 at the Nelson Car Wash on Nelson Avenue.
Following the Nelson tournament, the Bombers have two road trips to Grand Forks and Lethbridge, Alta., to conclude the spring high school season.
