The Cardinals will open the 2015 season Saturday, May 30th when the host the defending West Shore Twilight League Playoff champion Cumberland Dodgers at Rickenbach-Shirley Field at 1 p.m.
The campaign was originally slated to open Sunday, May 24th at home with New Cumberland but has been postponed due to the fact the Mechanicsburg High School team was in the District 3 playoffs. It has been rescheduled for June 23rd at 6 p.m.
Improvements at the field include new bleachers behind home plate, a new press box, new foul poles and a new pavilion adjacent to the concession stand. Dedication of these improvements will take place Sunday, May 31st when the Cardinals host Shippensburg in a 1 p.m. contest.
There are major changes on the Cardinals roster for 2015. Among those departing are Jake Warner, Mike Palkovitz and Elliot Searer. There will be more when manager Bill Rickenbach releases the roster later this week. It does however have eight Wildcat players on it including pitchers Jeff Allen, Hayden Seig and Tom Heenan.
Look for updated information and the roster in a few days.
