After a season where they got to the league final, the Regina Red Sox have a new look as they get ready for the 2016 Western Major Baseball League season.
Training camp will begin Sunday and when it does, former player Mitch MacDonald will be in charge as he was named the team’s new manager in the off-season.
MacDonald says it will be a little strange addressing the players for the first time as a manager, but he is looking forward to bringing what is hopefully another season of exciting baseball to Currie Field.
MacDonald says there are a couple of returnees from the 2015 team, and there will be a lot of local talent, but some guys won’t be in Regina to start the year as they finish the season off with their college teams in the U-S.
The Red Sox season begins at home May 29 against Weyburn.
