Good size crowd in attendance for the opening game tonight here in Vancouver on a pleasant night with a temperature around 20 degrees ( 72F), partly cloudy skies and no humidity.
 
The ageless 47-year old Mike Piechnik was in top form and had all of his pitches working tonight giving up just two hits. After the game Mike was here in the press box and commented that his breaking ball was really on the move in this game. We can all attest to his curve ball tonight and the fans were equally impressed.
 
Game two is currently underway between the Horse Lake Thunder and the South Hill Giants and after three innings of play, the South Hill Giants have a 1-0 lead over Horse Lake.
 
John Bishop is pitching for the Giants and Sonny Perkins is hurling for Horse Lake.
