The Vauxhall Academy of Baseball Jets have had a scorching start to the season and they once again had an undefeated weekend. With two doubleheaders scheduled at Jets Stadium on Saturday and Sunday against the University of Calgary JV and SV teams, VAB was ready for some home cooking.

“We played good baseball. On Saturday we played the junior varsity team from the University of Calgary and we pitched really well in the first game, but didn’t hit great. The second game, we hit really well and still pitched pretty good. Moving into the senior varsity on Sunday, we had balance. We had one tough inning in Game 2, but outside of that, we were really good in all three facets of the game. It was refreshing and fun to see, and overall, you couldn’t have asked for a better weekend weather-wise. It was a beautiful day on Sunday especially and it was great to play at home. Now we’re preparing to go on a road trip,” said Les McTavish, head coach of the Jets.

Saturday saw a doubleheader against the JV team and it was a good start for the Jets as they took a 5-0 win in their first game at home this spring.
