Cardinals season kicks off June 3rd; tickets now available

After announcing that the Intercounty Baseball League was planning a June start for the 2021 season, the IBL has released their modified schedule for the league’s 102nd season.

More locally, the Hamilton Cardinals will play 36 games during the season which will get underway on Thursday, June 3rd with the team taking to the road to face the Kitchener Panthers at Jack Couch Park. The next night the same two teams will go at it as the Cardinals open the home portion of their schedule hosting the Panthers.

“We are hopeful that the IBL has baseball in 2021 and we are releasing a modified schedule based on a June 1 start date,” stated IBL Commissioner John Kastner. “This is of course tentative and based on a myriad of factors outside of our control including vaccine availability, mass immunization rollout and most importantly restrictions and allowances based on the province’s emergency orders.”

During the 2021 season, the Cardinals will play Barrie, Brantford, Guelph, Kitchener, Longon and Toronto five times while facing Welland six times. The club’s 18 home games schedule sees the team hosting eight games on Friday nights while the remaining ten games are taking place on Sunday afternoons.

All home games will be held at CarStar Field at Bernie Arbour Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario with a 2:05 p.m. start on Sundays and a 7:35 p.m. start on Friday.
