The minor baseball season kicked off on the weekend with the Slave Lake U13 Heat playing three games in St. Albert. The Heat won two and lost one.

“Big learning weekend,” is how coach Kevin Campbell describes it.

Wins were 15 – 9 over St. Albert Cardinals Blue and 17 – 16 over Grande Prairie in “a real nail-biter.” The loss was 18 – 12 to St. Albert Cardinals White.

The U13 Heat are next in action in GP on the last weekend of the month.
