Wenatchee 16, San Francisco Seals 4 last night.  

Wenatchee at Yakima Valley Pippins 7:05 tonight.


A new season of league games begins this evening against a new league member.  Wenatchee will be at Yakima County Stadium to face the Yakima Valley Pippins.  This is not the first game with a Yakima team.  The South Central Washington city had a team in 2001 to ‘03 called the Yakima Paladin Knights, and they were league members in ‘02 and ‘03.  The AppleSox had their troubles with the outfit from “The Palm Springs of Washington.”   In eight games Yakima won five – 2-2 league and 3-1 nonleague.  Only one game was played in Yakima and the host team won that.


Games in Yakima 

There is the one game mentioned with the Paladin Knights, but that is not all of the AppleSox games in that city.  In the days of the Pacific International League (2000-04) the league tournament was in Yakima in 2003.  In that event Wenatchee went three-for-three to win the first of their six league championships.


League Openers

The Sox have done pretty well in their initial games in conference play the past 14 seasons.  They have an 11-3 record, are undefeated in six games when opening on the road and have a two-game win streak.


June 6 Games

The club has played six games on the sixth day of the sixth month and has a 4-2 record.  They are 3-2 in league games, 1-0 on the road and have a one-game losing streak.
