Bozeman Bucks Travel to Canada

Posted: Updated:

The Bozeman Bucks are on their way to Canada to play two games up north that were originally rained out earlier in the year.

The Bozeman Bucks loaded the bus and are on their way to Canada.

On tap for the team includes back-to-back double headers.

First with the Medicine Hat Knights tomorrow and in Lethbridge on Friday.

"These games got rained out before when we made the trip all the way up there,” said third baseman Conner Linebarger. “We stayed two night for no reason. These are pretty important games. We're close with everyone else, so we definitely need to get these games."

"The rest of our games are conference,” said pitcher Connor Tweet. “So they are all definitely must wins. They're very important. The conference is locked up right now. As many games as we can get ahead, it's all for the better. So we can't take these games for granted."

The trip up to Canada can be one of the toughest.

It's the longest drive to play conference teams, and going through the border can take some time.

"Hopefully the border crossing will be a little bit easier,” said Head Coach Dave Legg. “They didn't seem to be too nice to us. But we have everything in place this time. We have the paperwork. The minors have to have a written letter that they can travel with me and the baseball team. I'll have to have their passports."

Once into Canada it will be all about baseball, and coming away with some much needed wins.

"Our defense needs to pick up its game,” Legg said. “We've had good defensive streaks, and the we've had games where we weren't very good. We need to be more consistent. Offensively, I think we're swinging the bat really well. I like where we're at there. We just need to continue to do that and play better defense."
