Blake Robertson and Rhett Feser of Unity, Saskatchewan, play baseball with the Northwest Prairie Pirates, based in Lloydminster. The Pirates compete in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League, the highest calibre midget AA/AAA baseball league in the province.
In front of some 200 local fans, the Pirates hosted a double-header at Unity July 8, against the Saskatoon Diamondbacks. Dan Feser, Rhett’s father, said the Saskatoon coach was so impressed by the fan turnout, he wants to return to play at Unity again next year!
The teams split the games, with the Pirates winning the first one and the D-Backs winning the second. Enjoy these scenes from the afternoon and evening games on what was a perfect day to come out and watch a ball game – warm, sunny and not too windy.
