The Nanaimo Pirates are hosting their second annual exhibition game against the Victoria Harbour Cats Sunday.

Pirates Coach Doug Rogers hopes the game, against the best team in the West Coast League, will showcase the options for kids to play high level ball on Vancouver Island.

“We want to promote baseball in the community of Nanaimo and mid Island.  We want as many kids that want to go to this kind of level to be able to see the Harbour Cat players, the overall talent level that they carry into the stadium,” said Rogers.

The Pirates will have some of their alumni joining the team for the day.

“We have probably up to 12 alumni committed to come out and many of them are playing college baseball, or have played college baseball or professional baseball for that matter.  So we have a pretty good selection of ball players to go up against this quality team that we're playing.”

Game time is 3pm Sunday at Serauxmen Stadium.
