Wesmen add baseball to their slate of sports
Beginning in September 2011, the University of Winnipeg will be on deck as their newly announced baseball team will begin practicing before they take to the field in spring 2012. The Wesmen team will play teams in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), National Collegiate Athletic Association and Junior Colleges Athletic Association while they work up to become a full member of the NAIA in a few years, according to a U of W media release. The team, coached by Guy Yerama and Mike Krykewich, will give back to the community through workshops and clinics. Games will be held at Shaw Park, home of the Winnipeg Goldeyes.
