Casper Horseheads hopeful on season start

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) With spring upon us, that usually means baseball season is right around the corner. The Casper Horseheads are still hopeful they will start their season on time.

"You know we are just going by the news, taking it day by day, but we are very hopeful that we do have a successful season as everyone is probably itching to get outside right now," said Casper Horseheads General Manger of Operations Jerome Acosta.

The Horseheads have a new head coach this season Jim Kelly. They plan to bring back a lot of popular fans nights like bark in the park where people can bring their dogs to enjoy some baseball. They also plan to partner up and do game nights with local businesses to help support the community.

"Reaching out to those businesses that aren't necessarily partners with us right now, but businesses we can help, if it means providing 50 tickets, for them to increase their curbside pick up or for them to increase their coffee sales or their beer sales whatever that may be," said Acosta. "Just doing our part to really help stimulate the local economy and make sure and ensure those small local businesses survive during this time."

The Horseheads are still looking for people to be host families and provide a home for their baseball players during the summer. If anyone is interested in becoming a host family you can email: hostfamily@casperhorseheads.com. Tickets are also already available on horseheads.com

The Horseheads home opener is scheduled for May 26 against the Western Nebraska Pioneers at Mike Lansing Field.
