Not the most promising of starts – maybe the name change needed a slower introduction. The Twins have become Bandits

By Pepper Parr

BURLINGTON, ON.  March 27, 2013 What we all knew and loved as the Burlington Twins appear to have gone rogue and changed their name to the Burlington Bandits.

And just to show they don’t play by the rules they cancelled their Easter Sunday Workout.  This was an “official” team  workout.

New name, new look and a new location. The Bandits will play at the Burloak Sports Centre this season

The Bandits next scheduled spring training workout is scheduled for Sunday, April 7th at the Burloak Sports Centre from 12:30pm to 2:00pm. Open to the public of course  and if you think you can swing the big stick or scoop a bouncing ball and get it back to second base before the runner does you are encouraged to attend.  First chance to get a look at the  updated roster.

The Burlington Bandits home opener is May 11th, 2013 against the London Majors; tickets only $7.

The Burlington Bandits are an independent minor-league baseball team of the semi-professional Inter county Baseball League (IBL). The team was founded in 2011 as the Burlington Twins and changed ownership and name in 2013.

Burlington businessman Scott Robinson now calls all the shots and signs the cheques as well.

The Bandits play a 42-game season with 21 games at home and 21 on the road.
