The New Jersey Jackals welcomed their new local rival Sussex County Miners in this early season game. The Jackals have been without an in-state rival since the Newark Bears folded after the 2013 season.

Shikoku All-Stars

International baseball was added to the schedule this year as the league hosted the Shikoku Island All-Stars. The Japanese team, shown here taking a bow, visited all 6 Can-Am League stadiums and compiled a 6-10 record.

The Aigles are champions

The Trois-Rivieres Aigles, in only their second year in the league, won their first Can-Am League championship in a five-game series. For the New Jersey Jackals it was the fifth straight year they have lost in the final series.

  3. I’ve only been to a few baseball games. Sports aren’t for me in many ways, but it’s fun to people watch or listen to conversations in the stands around me. Oddly enough, I’ve read a handful of essays where baseball becomes the springboard for encompassing broader topics and have loved those pieces very much. My grandma was a huge baseball fan though.
