So here we go, Foresters fans! Your nine-time (and two-time defending) NBC World Series national champions are back! The 2022 team plays its first game on the road on June 9, and the HOME OPENING DAY is June 10 at Pershing Park! Click here to check out the entire summer schedule, which includes 21 home games at Pershing Park. Perhaps seven or eight players from the 2021 team are scheduled to return this summer, plus you’ll get to welcome another set of new players to the team and the city.
With a home opener against the rival Conejo Oaks on Friday, June 10, the Foresters jump right into California Collegiate League play with six straight league games. Other season highlights include the annual game on July 4, a great local tradition; the northern teams from the CCL, Walnut Creek and Lincoln, make a visit in July; the season wraps up, as usual, on Host Family Sunday, July 24.
As defending national champs, the Foresters will return to the NBC World Series in Wichita, starting (probably) July 28. Season tickets will go on sale soon, but make your plans now to be at a LOT of games this summer. Spread the word and bring a new fan to experience Foresters fun!
As always, the Foresters need your help: We need HOST FAMILIES! We are very short of them this year. Please contact the team at [email protected] if you can help. We are also seeking sponsors, as usual, for radio, program, and in-game support. We have lots of ways to help your business reach our fans–contact the team today!
We’ll have more articles soon previewing the 2022 team and letting folks know about Hugs for Cubs events as they are planned.
’Ster it up!
