The defending American Association champion Winnipeg Goldeyes baseball team will host the Can-Am League's Les Capitales de Québec and the expansion Les Aigles de Trois-Riviéres in the 2013 season.
Details of interleague play between the AA and Can-Am League were announced on Wednesday. The Goldeyes will play five interleague series against Can-Am League opponents in the 2013 season with the Goldeyes hosting the two teams, both based in Quebec, at Shaw Park for five games. The Goldeyes will host Les Capitales on June 14-16, 2013 and Les Aigles on July 26-29.
Interleague play between the American Association and Can-Am League started last season. The Goldeyes hosted Québec in the team’s only interleague series in 2012.
"It was a nice change to once again play a Canadian team last summer and we look forward to two more all-Canadian series in Winnipeg this summer," said Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier in a statement.
The Goldeyes also announced their seven-game exhibition schedule. Winnipeg will host the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks at Shaw Park on May 6-7 and the University of Winnipeg Wesmen on May 10. The Goldeyes will then travel to Fargo for games on May 11 and 12 before heading to Kansas City to face the T-Bones on May 14 and the Wingnuts in Wichita on May 15.
The Goldeyes' schedule, released last month, has the Goldeyes playing 14 different teams overall and hosting 11 teams at Shaw Park.
The Goldeyes' 2013 training camp opens May 4 at Shaw Park.
