Bandits start their league playoff round – everyone gets into the playoffs.

By Staff.

BURLINGTON, ON. August 9, 2013 – The season wasn’t the greatest but there is a chance to redeem themselves in the Intercounty Baseball League playoffs which begin on Friday for the Burlington Bandits when they play the London Majors in London on Friday evening for round one of the playoffs.  The first home game of the playoffs for the Bandits will be on Saturday August 10th at Nelson Park.

Game starts at 1:00 pm n Saturday – wear anything red and you get a coupon for $1 to use at the concession stand.

If the BAndits do this often enouh Friday night – it could be an interesting playoff series.

The Bandits will travel to London for game one on Friday nigh, the 9th,  for a 7:35pm showdown with the Majors. The Bandits will then return home on Saturday, August 10th for a 1:00pm start at Nelson Park.

Playoff tickets can be purchase at the front entrance gate upon arrival, by phone at 905-630-9036 or at our official team store.

This is how the InterCounty Baseball League season ended. Now on to the playoffs – the Bandits need to get a little craftier and steal home more often.

This is the end of the first season for the newly named Burlington Bandits.  Scott Richardson took over the team and brought much more promotion and pizzazz to the marketing side of the business – now the team needs to focus on the talent and develop a team that can hit and run.  A pitcher wouldn’t hurt either.

What the team does do is offer good baseball in a setting that is affordable, comfortable and designed to get a family out to a game they can walk to if you live in the east end or drive to easily.

It has been a decent first season under new management.  A bit of a boost out of the basement during the playoffs will be a good launch into the next season.  Same location next year?
