The Portage Collegiate Trojans are making their debut on the diamond today. The PCI baseball team has had their fair share of hoops to jump through already this season but they are now finally able to get into the action today. Coach Cam Asham says the boys are all ecstatic.

"Even if it's going to be a shorter season than normal, it has been two years. Our Grade 12s were in Grade 9 the last time high school ball was played. I think we have one or two of them that were on that team, so in terms of playing high school baseball, it's a new experience for most of the guys," Asham explains.

Asham says the schedule had to be adjusted three different times this year due to struggles with weather, however, he says they're just thankful to have a season at this point. The Trojans are set to play a set of back-to-back games today in Sanford and Asham notes this will be their first time playing outside this season.

"We haven't been outside yet. We've been in the gym for about three or four weeks now," Asham explains. "We've been going a couple of times a week in the gym and it looks like our first time on the field will be our first game."

Despite the lack of practice on the diamond, Asham still has high hopes for this PCI squad.

"We're pretty excited. We have a really good group of guys, we have 13 on the team, some guys that have played a high level of ball," says Asham. "We're looking forward to getting out onto the field and seeing what happens."

The Trojans begin their season today with a double-header against the Sanford Sabres. The first outing is set for 4:15. PCI will play their home opener on May 16.
