The Edmonton Collegiate Baseball Club (ECBC) began their inaugural season in the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC) this past weekend. It was a cruel twist of fate that the ECBC drew the defending champions as their first opponent but mission accomplished, we were playing baseball! Nothing in sport is more overblown that opening day/weekend. Whether you go 3-1 or 1-3 in the opening series, it does not define your season.
